ELIZABETH (ALDBN) PABODIE AND 
DESCENDANTS. 



{Continued from page 22.) 

7. ^ Priscilla Pabodie (^ Elizabeth Alden). Born in Dux- 
bury, Jan. 15, 1653; died in Kingston, June 3, 1724; 
married in Duxbury, Dec. 24, 1677, Rev. Ichabod Wis- 
wall, son of Thomas and Elizabeth ( ) AYiswall ; born 

1637-8, probably in Dorchester; died in Duxbury, July 
23, 1700. Rev. Ichabod Wiswall maiTied, first. Remember 
, and had Elizabeth. He was freeman 1674. He en- 
tered Hanard colleo:e, but did not oraduate. He was settled 
in the ministry in Duxbury, in 1676. Winsor says, "He was 
a man of energy and piety, and under his ministry the 
prospects of the church were bright, and the highest pros- 
perity was secured to his people." He ranked with Mather 
and Cotton in the estimation of the colonists. "He died 
much lamented of the people, among whom he had been a 
friend, an advisor, and an instructor." "He was buried in 
Duxbury, in the second burying ground, and his monument 
bears this inscription, 'Here lyeth buried the Body of ye 
Reverend Mr Ichabod Wiswall. Died July ye 23'"^ Anno 
Domini. 1700. in the 63 year of his Asre.' Priscilla 
(Pabodie) Wiswall went to Kingston to live, after her hus- 
band's death, probably with her daughter, Mrs. Gershom 
Bradford, and is buried there." Mr. Thomas Bradford 
Drew, of Pilgrim Hall, has aided me materially in this 
family and the two following, making search in Probate 
Records, etc. He is a descendant of Priscilla (Pabodie) 
Wiswall. For Wiswall genealogy see Genealogy by Rev. 
Anson Titus. N.E. Hist, and Gen. Reg., vol. 40, page 5S, 
His will is dated May 25, 1700, and mentions "my eldest

Her stone and her husband's can be seen in the cemetery 
almost due south from the Pabodie monument. "In memory 
of Sarah, ye wife of John Coe, died Aug. ye 27. 1740. in 
ye 8(j^^' year of her age." She married, probably in Dux- 
bury, Nov. 10, 1681, John Coe, son of Matthew and Eliza- 
beth (Whately) Coe, of Portsmouth, N.H., where I suppose 
John was born June 30, 1649. He died in Little Compton, 
RJ., Dec, IG, 1728. Gravestone: "Here lyeth the body 
of John Coe, deed December ye 10^" 1728. in ye 79^'^ year 
of his Age.^^ Tradition says, vSarah accompanied her father 
on a trip to Little Compton, probably to make a home for 
him, and that John Coe, a surveyor, came down the 
river in a boat, landed on the shore near the present 
location, and helped William Pabodie lay out the lots, and 
the next year married Sarah. The}' lived for a few years 
in Duxbury, but came to Little Compton before 1688. Sarah 
Coe was admitted to the Little Compton church, November, 
1708. His will — Taunton Probate Kecords, vol. 6, pages 
195-198-199 — speaks of his daughters — Lydia Bailey, 
wife of John Bailey ; Sarah Tompkins, wife of Samuel

June 27, 1G58 ; died in Duxbury, Aug. 27, 1740; married 
there, December, 1673, Benjamen Bartlett, son of Benjanien 
and Sarah (Brewster) Bartlett. He was grandson of Robert 
Bai-tlett, who came in the "Ann " in 1623, and married Mary, 
daughter of Richard Warren, a " i\Ia}'flowcr " pilgrim. He was 
also grandson of Love and Sarah (Collier) Ikewster, and 
great-gran d>on of Elder AVilliam and ]\Iary ( ) Brew- 

ster, who also came in the " Mayflower." 

Benjamen Bartlett's will is dated Dec. 10, 1717, — proved 
April 10, 1724. He names loving wife Ruth, " three youngest 
daughters, Priscilla, Deborah, and Abigail," other daughters, 
Sarah Bradford, Rebcckah Bradford, and Ruth Murdoch, 
also "Merc}^ daughter of son William, deed." 

I am inclined to think that Winsor has mixed the children 
of Benjamen Bartlett with those of Samuel Bartlett, and 
using the will as a basis I shall rearrange them, but hope that 
any one who can prove an error, will not hesitate to do so :

Constant and Elizabeth (Collier) Southworth, and brother 
of Edward, who mamcd her sister ]Marv. He was born 
1659, and died June 25, 1719. The gravestone of these two 
is one larg-e slab, laid horizontally on concrete and stone, 
about a foot high. This^style of stone was peculiar to the 
families holding a higher social position, and the Southworths 
were of the nobility in England.* The inscriptions are as 
follows : " Here l3"eth Interred the Bod}^ of Rebekka'^ the 
wife of Capt William Southworth, who departed this life 
December ye 23, in the 43'-^^ year of her age, 1702." "Here

Martha (Kirkland) Blague (afterwards Blake). Her first 
husband was Joseph Blague. She was daughter of Nathaniel

Gideon was published "Intentions of marriage with Pris-

he was never married to her, evidently a lovers' quaiTcl, for 
she married William Wilcox. Otis Wilborn, in copying the 
old Little Compton liecords, assuming they married, gives 
Priscilla Pabodie as Gideon Southworth's first wife. Gideon 
Southworth married first and only time, in 1728, Mary Wil- 
born, daughter of Jolm and Sarah (Palmer) Wilborn. He 
finally went to Rochester, ]Mass., to live. He had thirteen 
children : Isaac and Parnell, born July 31, 1729 ; Wilbor,

Andrew Soutlnvortli, born Sept. 12, 1709 ; married Tem- 
perance Kirkland and went to Connecticut. I do not 
know when AVilliam Southworth went to Little Compton, 
certainly before 1700. None of them connected themselves 
with the church. 

11. ^ Hannah Pabodie Q Elizabeth Alden) . Born in Dux- 
bury, Oct. 15, 1662; died after 1714; married, Aug. 2, 
1683, Samuel Bartlett, brother of Benjamen, who married 
her sister Ruth (see that family for pedigrees). He was 
born, r?);died 1713. 

A letter of administration was granted on the estate of 
Samuel Bartlett " to his Relict Hannah," Dec. 9, 1713. His 
estate was divided in 1714, and mentions widow ; sons Benja- 
men, Samuel, Ichabod ; daughters, Hannah, Elizabeth/Lydia, 
Sarah. The son Ichabod and daughters Lydia, Sarah, and 
E lizabeth were jnjnors, and had guardians appointed. 

Winsor gives William and Judah, but I have transferred 
William to the family of Benjamen, and if there was a Judah 
he was dead in 1814. In my cop}'^ of Winsor's Duxbury 
(second hand), Judah was erased and Judith inserted. 
Winsor says that Samuel, the father, was a mariner. 

We will now say the children are as follows, all probably 
born in Duxbur}^ : 

75 ^Benjamen Bartlett, bom 1684. f Davis's 

76 Joseph Bartlett, born 1686. <[" Landmarks

81 Lydia Burtlett. 

82 Sarah Bartlett. 

Possibly Judah or Judith, died young. 
Possibly AVilliam, died young.

the third church, of fourteen members, among those recom- 
mended from other churches was Lydia Grinnell, June 20,

the Lord's table, " were Daniel, Rutli, Mary, George Grin- 
nell. Daniel Grinnell, the father, was chosen first deacon, 
but declined. At Court of Probate held at Guildford, Conn. 
Jan. 20, 1740-41, Peabody and George Grinnell, two of 
the executors of 'David 'Grinnell's will, had will recorded. 
It was dated November, 1726, and speaks of beloved wife 
Lydia ; daughters Mary Lay, Priscilla Redfield, Elizabeth 
Stevens, Lydia Clark, Rebecca Donde or Doude, Sarah

WHAT SHOULD THE FAMILY HISTORIAN 
ATTEMPT TO ACCOMPLISH? 



The evolution of the modern American genealogy is a sub- 
ject which has attracted little attention. The development 
of the old-fashioned pedigree wherein but one line of a 
family was shown, and that often but meagrely, to the col- 
lection of facts about all descendants of a common ances- 
tor is owing to the American. Our system is being adopted 
in a slight measure by the English, and as the importance of 
hereditary rank fades the tendency to pay more attention 
to the side lines, the cadet branches of a family, will 
strenofthen. 

There are two or three irood reasons for the xVmerican 
methods of presenting a family history. The first is doubt- 
less that already hinted at, the non-existence of hereditary 
honors. A second was the inal)ility of the pioneers in gene- 
alogical research in America to o'et at tlic Enolish archives, 
which only of late have been accessi))le to all comers and 
available to their fullest extent — to the o'reat s^ain of both 
England and America, to the student of history as well as 
of o^enealoiiv, and to the utter destruction of manv an elab- 
orately drawn pedigree based upon nothing but a desire to 
claim a great antiquity for one's family, and })atched together 
by statements drawn from this or that record made to fit the 
caise. An Enij-lish writer attributes the form of the Ameiican 
genealogy entirely to this cause, supposing the genealogical 
taste followed the path open to investigation. And third, a 
reason Avhich may have had more influence than irenerally 
supposed, the feeling of kinshipwhich Americans of the same 
blood have toward each otlier. We are apt to consider our- 
selves English, that is in race ; but the large infusion of Scotch

and Irish Wood, which is especially strong in the South 
and West and in some parts of Xew England, New Hamp- 
shire, and the coast of ]Maine for example, together with the 
ancient religious bonds, has certainly tended to establish a 
clannish sympathy among descendants of a common ancestor. 
This is evident if we look at the societies in existence to-dav 
not only of persons of the same blood and of the same name , 
but persons of varied name and lineage but united with the 
one bond of a descent from a common ancestor. This family 
sympathy has done much to create among members of one 
branch of a fumilv an interest in the cloiniis of others of the 
family removed even to the eleventh degree. 

It is a question to what extent this tendency to provide a 
place in tbe family genealogy for all of the name can be 
carried. The expense of obtaining from all over this great 
country of ours the various facts needed to establish the 
connection of one line to another, and the intinite labor of :•, ^ ;, 

arranoins: all that material as f]rathered, is a matter of some 
hnportance. 

It must be a fact that the statements of those directly 
interested are taken as perfectly reliable by many compilers 
of genealogies. In many cases no other course is 0})en, for .ji 

but little attention was paid to the record of family events 
and vital statistics during the period when most of our newer 
States and territories were coming within the pale of civiliza- 
tion. One has but to attempt to folloNv a genealogical search 
into Kentucky, Tennessee, and the other States whose settle- 
ment dates only to recent times to appreciate the truth of 
this statement. "Wild traditions pass current ; and a sup- 
posed close connection is often claimed where none at all 
exists. Nothing but the universal inborn love of family, 
and pride in one's surname, among scattered families of 
the same stock, the same spirit which existed among the 
clans of Scotland, has enabled the c^encalosfist to com- 
plete his work with any degree of certainty in regard to 
its correctness.

THE FAMILY HISTORIAN. 



> 



The proper course appears to be to limit the family gene- 
aloirv to the two centuries of American settlement which 
cover the period of colonization, the Revolutionary period, 
and the be^innino^ of our national life. 

The records of those days are fortunately in such condition, 
except in some portions of the country unhappily devastated 
by war, that the family traditions and famil}^ records may 
be verified and t^^upplemented. 

It is far better to print all we can find concerning the first 
six o'cnerations of a fiimilv, and devote one's time and eneray 
to gathering up all the stray branches of that period, so that 
people of the present may find their ancestor placed of a 
surety and learn all about his or her career, than to cut out 
from the book, as is too often clone, all those lesser events 
in the life of individuals which a century hence will be of 
absorbin2^ interest not only to descendants, but to the student 
of social conditions and progress and of local history, in 
order that the bare i^cords of births, marriages, and deaths 
of later irenerations may find room in a l)ook which is often 
so cumbrous and in many respects valueless as to be an 
elephant on the hands of the compiler. 

The ex[)ense of collecting and arranging and printing a 
family gcneah)g3^ for the period since 1800 may be esti- 
mated as double that for doing the same work for the period 
preceding 1800. 

Nearly every interested person can by a little exertion or 
expense prove his ancestry for three or four generations, 
and that would enable him to connect Avith the persons 
described in a genealogy of his family for the earlier period 
named. 

By inserting lists of soldiers with their services, college 
graduates, professional men, and men of mark, with short 
sketches of their descent from the common ancestor, a 
genealogy of any American family for the period prior to 
1800 can be made of equal and greater value than one 
attempting the impossible feat of recording- in due order all

the descendants of one man living in the seventeenth 
centuiy. 

Such works vrould be the nucleus upon which special 
family pedigrees could be founded and the line of a family 
in one locality or of one branch continued. The result would 
be to enlist the services of persons in each branch, in the 
effort to record the history of that branch, and as such a one 
would bring special knowledge and qualifications to his 
task the result would be a gain over the present fashion of 
allowing a compiler to settle all minor questions, and establish- 
ing for future generations a more or less complete state- 
ment of the history of their branch of the family. The 
man}' errors which creep into conscientiously prepared gene- 
alogies testify to the impoi-tance of every branch of a famil}^ 
bavins: its own <xenealo«ist and historian. 

At the present day, when so much is at stake where one's 
ancestry is involved, and when so many unscrupulous 
persons are printing whatever is sent to them for insertion 
provided it will increase the sale of their book, when honest 
but ignorant amateurs are compiling genealogies and the 
services of so-called genealogists who are springing up all 
over the country are retained to establish the most impor- 
tant points, when misinformed persons in their applications 
to the various hereditary orders are swearing in good faith 
to the correctness of incorrect pedigrees, statements com- 
monl}' accepted with but little attempt at verification, — any 
change in standards which will tend to concentrate the 
attention of competent students of family history upon the 
earlier history of a family should be welcomed.

BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

(Third Paper.) 

JAMES BISHOP, SECRETARY AND LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR 
OF THE NEW HAVEN COLONY (1647-1691). 



BY NATHANIEL HOLMES BISHOP, OF LAKE GEORGE, 

WARREN CO., N.Y. 

Like other early settlers of New Eno'land bearins: the 
name of Bishop, the secretary and lieutenant-governor of 
the New Haven Colony left no record of his birthplace or 
British ancestry. 

The inscriptions on the family tombstone in lot number 
29, ]\la})le avenue, in the Gi'ove-street Cemetery, New 
Haven, Conn., read: "James Bisho}) born in England came 
to New Haven 1G47 served as secretary & Lt. Governor of 
the Colony died June 24 1G91 at an advanced age" 

" Samuel Bishop son of James died Mar 12 1747 ae 81" 

"Samuel Bishop grandson of James died in 1780 ae 81 " 

In 1637 Kev. Peter Prudden with a party from Heitford- 
shire and its vicinity, accompanied by the Rev. John Daven- 
port, Gov. Theopliilus Eaton, Deputy-Gov. Stephen Good- 
year, and several Londoners, came to New England in two 
ships. Three ships followed the first ones, arriving at New 
Haven in 1639. lie v. John Davenport removed from New 
Haven to Boston in 1668. 

The early New Haven books of records furnish the follow- 
ing facts bearing upon the personality of James Bishop. 
He was made freeman jNIarch 7, 1647. 

Another authority assei-ts that he took the oath of fidelity 
in 1644, at the time his brother, Henry Bishop, was made 
freeman. In 1648, when Henry Bishop had a dis})ute with 
Mr. Davenport, whose estate he managed, he was asked if

he had any witness, and "produced brother James Bishop." 
(Vol. 2, page 434.) 

The record (page 392, 1G4S) recites that Henry Bishop 
had jNIr. Davenport's farm, and the said Henry was " no 
settled planter but may remove at leisure ... a 
man of place and esteem, and having a good visible estate in 
the plantation." 

In the same book of records (page 309, 1647) it is 
noted that ''John Bishop, servant to Mr. AUerton," was 
cited for want of arms. He " slept on watch" in 1649. His 
will, 1651 (not recorded), left his property to no one by 
the name of Bishop. This may be the John called by Dr. 
Savage the son of Henry Bishop, and who, according to his 
"Dictionary," died in 1661 unmarried. The Salem, Mass., 
records stute that John Bishoj), of Xew Haven, 1650, was 
one of the debtors of 'Miles AVard, of Salem, who traded 
along tlie coast. Here were three men by the name of 
Bishop among the early settlers of the Xew Haven Colony. 
I have not been able to connect this John with any of his 
family name in Xew England. 

Henry Avas living in Xewport, R.I., early in 1638, and 
was made freeman there in 1640. "\Micre was his brother 
James at that time? In 1647 he sold a house in New 
Hampshire, and his brother Henry is noted as having a wife, 
Patience, who died in Xew Hampshire July 24, 1655. 

The Allerton mentioned in connection with John Bishop 
had a tradinir-house on Manhattan island, " from which he 
moved back to X'^ew Haven." This "Isaac Allerton, senior, 
of Xew Haven, merchant," was noted by Rev. John Daven- 
port, Sept. 27, 1654, as then being on a vo^'age to Virginia. 

Lacking clews to point to the English ancestry of James 
Bishop, we are forced to study his X^ew England environ- 
ment. His brother Henry furnishes more data than the 
lieutenant-governor, for he resided in at least three localities 
— Xewport, X^ew HaA'cn, and Boston, where he finally died. 

The name of a picturesque mariner is associated with

122 BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

Henry's records at Newport, and in business matters with 
Thomas Bishop, merchant, of Ipswich, iNIass. He appears at 
Newport in the same year with Henry, in 1638. He was 
Osmund Doutch, who was granted the right to prefix " Mr." 
to his name in March, 1638-9, and Avas made an inhabitant 
that 3^ear. His shallop was put in bond as security to per- 
form a contract. Later lie established a fisher}^ on Noddle's 
island, Boston harbor, then wrote to his wife, who was a 
relative of the old bailiff (mayor) of Bridport, Dorsetshire, 
to sell their home and bring the children to Boston. I found 
his name on the parish registers spelled Osmond Douch, 
Do well, Dowtch. 

On those same registers I followed the long list of Bishop 
names for one hundred and fifty years. There were written 
nearly all the Christian names of the early settlers of New 
England surnamed Bishop. As I tried to identity each 
of them he died (on the register) before I could land him in 
a New England colony, Osmund Doutch, whose shallop 
might have taken his wife's relatives to America, failed me 
here in his English home. However, I found that the old 
bailitf's daughter had married a New Enirland " adventurer," 
a brother to the first shopkeeper of Boston, of whom, with 
others who went from Bridport to the ^Massachusetts Colony, 
I will write at some future time. 

Osmund Doutch died at Marblehead, Mass., when nearly 
one hundred 3'ears old. His descendants spell their names 
'^ Dutch." 

For the foreign parentage of James Bishop we may have 
to look nearer to the Sussex than to the Dorsetshire Bishop 
lines. I have been able to prove that James and Henry 
Bishop were brothers of Nathaniel Bishop, of Ipswich and 
Boston, Mass. This Nathaniel Bishop owned the land along 
the loAver side of Ilawley street, Boston, when it was known 
as Bishop's lane. It Avas his homestead. If we can establish 
any relationship between these three brothers and Thomas 
and Job Bishop, of Ipswich, Ave will haA^e much material to 
assist us in our search for the foreign ancestry of this line.

Within a few moDths Mr. Ebeii Putnam has sent me 
absohitc proofs of tbo ftict that Thomns and Job Bishop, of

practically accepted this relationship, but it v/as reserved for 
Mr. Putnam to make the important " find. "

GLEANINGS FEOM THE SALEM GAZETTE. 125 

Sept. 1, 1710, and his wife Abigail Oct. 24, 1710, aged 
fiftj-one years, which agrees ver}^ well with the Centre 
Church Records : born Oct. 30, 1659; died Oct. 24, 1710, 
aged fifty-one years. Several living descendants of James 
Bishop are much interested to learn of the truth of the 
MaltT)y marriage. If the descendants who are now investi- 
gating the history of Deput^^-Gov. Bishop would concentrate 
their eflbrts, and organize an association to complete their 
pedigrees, as many other families have done, I believe success 
would follow such efforts.

country on board our ships of war lying there, they having 
entered the American service during the peace. The Ameri- 
can commodore, however, positively refused to give a man 
of them up, and it Avas not thought advisable to have recourse 
to force for that purpose, so that a great number of our best 
seamen are now serving a foreign power against their inclina-

BOOK NOTES. 



HiSTOrtY OF MONTVLLLE, FORMERLY THE ISTORTII PaRTSII 

OF Keav London, from 1640 to 1896, by Henry A. Baker, 
Hai-tford, 1896. 8vo., cloth, pp. 727. 

Judge Baker has done much to help the student of Con- 
necticut genealogy by publisliing tliis history of what was in 
former times a part of New London, for 500 pages of the 
book relate to the flimilies of the town. Montville was 
incorporated 12 Oct., 1736, but the histor}^ of the parisli as 
it Avas before that date, which was but sli^htlv ahuded to in 
Miss Caulkins' ''History of Xew London," is full of romantic 
interest, for it was the home of Uncas and his descendants, 
and Judaic Baker has well told the story of that astute In- 
dian. The author of the "liistor}^ of Montville" has also 
published the results of his studies of the times of Uncas, in 
the " Bostonian " of a few years ago. Although Montville 
is a flourishing New England town, many of its inhabitants 
are of forei<2:n lineaii^e, and tlie sale of the book must be to 
the sons and daughters of New London in distant places. 

The Scotch Ancestors of President McKinley, by 
Edward A. Claypool. 

The present chief executive undoubtedly derives much of 
his political skill and acumen from his Scotch-Irish ances- 
tors. The pamphlet by i\Ir. Claypool is a brief statement of 
the line of descent, as it appears probable, the president en- 
joys. There is evidence of careful research, but one or two 
assumptions appear to be necessary, which need not sur])riso 
one who knows auglit of the difiiculties in tracing Scotcli de- 
scent b}^ way of Ireland. Both of Mr. INIcKinley's prede- 
cessors have had tlieir ancestral records, in part, printed. 
The readers of this ma^'azine will recall the "New EnHand

Ancestry of Grovcr Clcvclaiul." which was later reprinted in 
book form, and Mr. Chas. P. Keith has dealt with the ances- 
tors of President Harrison in much the same fashion. 

Browne Kill and What has happened There, with 
Some Account of the Browne Family, b^^ Ezra D. Hines. 

This pamphlet, a reprint from the Historical Collections of 
the Essex Institute, carries one back to the days when the 
colonial aristocracy^ ruled in Salem. Those were the days 
when a true "upper crust" existed in the old town, and a 
fi-ne set of worthies they were. An illustration of Browne 
Hall, on the summit of what is now known as Folly Plill, so 
called by the unappreciative residents of the neighboring 
country, drawn by a Salem artist, Elmer F. Brown, forms 
the frontispiece. It is said that Colonel Browne, the builder 
himself, removed the house from fear that it would suffer 
from an earthquake. The earthquake of the Ke volution 
overthrew the familv, but for lon^ afterward the hall of the 
house was standing in Danvers and used as an assembly hall. 

Among books and pamphlets recently received worthy of 
notice are : 

"Eichard Williams of Taunton and his Connection with 
the Cromwell Family," a reprint from the Register. The 
article is by Mr. J. H. Drummond. 

"The Follett, Dewey, Fassett, Safford Ancestry of Capt. 
Martin Dewey Follett and his AYife Persis Fassett," by Henry 
Parker Ward. The volume contains, beside genealogical 



records of the families named, a great deal of general his- 
torical information concerning events with which the fam- 
ilies were identified, and some accounts of allied families. 
'* Glances at the Ancestors of John Parker " is a pam[)hlet by 
the same author, and mostly devoted to the Jewett family. 

"Descendants of Aaron and Mary (Church) jNIagoun of 
Pembroke," and also a larwr volume concernino; the Breck 
family, entitled, " Genealogy of the Breck Family descended

tTHB idNG UNWILLING — HO W DANVEkS* 

BECAME A TOV7N. 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



/ 



Danvers, not only a place of great historic interest, 
but of great natural beauty, one of the gems of Essex 
county, is an interesting field to study the development of 
the growth of local institutions, for the place ever has been 
and still is remarl;aljle for the faculty by which the people 
take hold of local, political, and economical problems. 
Danvers is a pure democracy. In common ^s'ith many New 
England toMiis there has been a large infusion of Irish | 
blood, but this element has been brouijht to view in like 
maimer and to act with the great majority of their fellow 
towns-people, lineal descendants of the pioneer settlers 
of the territory, who were strong in the opinions which 
led to their leaving old England, and bold in their measures. 
They were men not from the lower ranks of life, but of 
the most substantial veomanry of EnHand. with a liberal 
re])r<^ntation of men of higher social station. Gov. John 
Endecott, Hugh Peter, Emanuel Downing, the father of 
Sir George Downing (for whom Downing street in Lon- 
don is named, and who should be universally esteemed 
in England, for he Avas responsible for forcing the princi- 
ple of specific appropriations by Parliament), Col. Thomas 
Keed, a soldier under the great Commonwealth, and who 
ke])t his position as colonel of a regiment after the Res- 
toration, Townsend Bishop, Col. William Ilathorne, John 
Putnam and John Porter, founders of two ureat American 

* Essex county, Massachusetts.

families, and the first the head of a family which had num- 
bered knights of tlie shire, hi^ii sherills of the county, and 
men who had served their country in military capacity, as 
the descendants of the emi2:rant have seiwed the newer 
England which their ancestors helped to make ; these and 
more like them* have left the impress of their cliaracters, 
of sterling worth, upon the successive generations who 
have lived and died within the confines of the old town. 

And yet the town as such is not so old, after all ; it but 
dates to 1757, prior to that time having been a district, from 
1752, and a parish of Salem from 1672, fort}^ years subse- 
quent to the first planting b}^ the worthies f named a])ove. 

It is concerning the attempts of the people of Salem vil- 
lage, or Farms parish as it was called, to obtain local govern- 
ment that this paper deals with. 

The first attempts to clear the land and render it available 
for cultivation were undoubtedl}' carried on under the eye 
of the proprietors resident at Salem town, but quickly 
homes were established, people came to occupj^ a^•ailable 
lands, and soon the necessity of attending religious services, 
of supplying men for the watch and ward of the elder and 
more compact settlement of Salem ])roper, became burden- 
some, and the "farmers," as they were termed, chafed under 
strict requirements of the law. One of the earliest com- 
plaints appears in a petition to the General Court "of ye 
Inhabitants of ye farms belonging to Salem," presented in 
1667, representing that "whereas ye petitioners have been 
required by- our commanders to attend ye military ^vatch at 
Salem town, which considerins: how remote our dwellinji's 
are from the town," proceeds to recite that at the county 

*■ Mr. Upbam, in his elaborate bistoiy of Salem witchcraft, writes regarding- the 
settlement of Danvers, *' Thus far our attention lias l)een directed to that portion of 
the population of Salem villajje drawn there by the ori;jrinal policy of the company 
in London to attract persons of superior social position, wealth, and education, to 
take up tracts of land, and lead the way into the interior. It operated to give a 
high character to the early agriculture of the country, and facilitate the settling of 
the lands." 

fEndicott's grant was in 1632.

HOW DANVERS BECAME A TOWN. 143 

court the preceding June a request was presented to that 
court that it determine whether it was their duty to attend 
the watch, and the judgment of tlie court was " as we con- 
ceive it that we were neither bound l)v law nor reason to 
attend ye said watcli, except in case of an emergency which 
we readily consent to, if our dwellings were many miles 
further from the tOAvn than they are, in case they wanted 
helpe. Yet notwithstanding judgement of court they did 
demand by express warrent in his ^Majesty's name per order 
of ye militia to attend the watch, and most of us did obey, 
rather to avoid any occasion of trouble, because the spirits 
of men seemed to be very hio'h." The matter was brouc^ht 
before the major of the regiment, Daniel Dennison, who 
wrote to the Salem authorities in behalf of the farmers, l)ut 
that beino" of no avail, recourse was a^ain had to the county 
court at the Ipswich term, who cared not to determine the 
case, but referred the petitioners to the General Court. The 
reasons <riven would seem at this day to be conclusive, as 
they appeared to disinterested persons at that time, viz. : 
"Remoteness: some of us 10 miles, some 3, some 9, and 
none nearer than five miles from Salem Meeting house upon 
ye road and then this is neer a mile farther to ye Centre 
place and both horse and foot required to go with arms and 
ammunition every way fixed according to law, so that some 
of us must travel 11 miles armed which is more than a day's 
march of a soldier under pay. The distance of our houses 
from one another, some a mile, some further, that it is difficult 
sendino^ one nei^^hbor to another in dark niijhts in a wilder- 
ness that is little cleared, weakness of many of our families 
when a man is taken away. Terror of wife left at home. 
One man had to go five or six miles to get one to stay with 
his family while he went to Salem to watch. Nineteen were 
warned for one night and had they all gone thc}^ would have 
cleared the strenirth two and three miles about." Even 
when but four were warned it promised to be a serious 
matter for the locality whence they came. The strong relig-

ious chavncter of the petitioners appears in the clause of the 
petition : "Question if it be not profaning the Lord's day for 
raen to travel so far armed on ye Lord's day to watch a 
populous town in time of peace, consisting of neer three 
hundred* able persons within the limits of the watch and 
ourselves left out." They ridicule the excuse of the captain 
of the watch : "AVhereas the captain of the w^atch pleaded an 
emergency at Salem because a Jersie or Guernsee ship came 
in in the night ; to wdiich we answer that tliere were several 
of us with our captain at the fort and we saw the ship sev- 
eral houi's before night : How horrible for a stranger ship to 
come in with so many fishing boats, Cape Ann and IMarble- 
head in the way and so many men working by day at the fort. 
We have not fifty able men to watch ; they a compact town."

HOW DAN VERS BECAME A TOWN. 145 

The county court records contain some interesting entries 
pertaining to this dispute about the watch and the resistance 
of the farmers to the authorities. at Salem town, 

Nathaniel Putnam, clerk of the troop under Capt. 
George Corwin, is accused in especial manner for two 
offences, viz. : 

1. For refusing to watch in the military watch at Salem, 
which he continued to refuse the whole summer, an ill prece- 
dent (l3eing an officer)- to the other troopers. 

2. For disobeying and contempt by slighting his captain's 
warrent in two respects : 1 , that the warrent is not to this day 
executed; 2, that when some troopers were sent by their 
captain to be assistant unto him he come out of his house 
and showed a brake ( r tutow, savinir he would lew his fine 
upon that and if it were well emplo^^ed in town they would 
have somethinc^ else to do than look for fines. Besides this 
his often absenting himself from the troop, coming and going 
without leave. 

Henry Kenny, of Salem (he lived beyond the village), ac- 
cused of having disobeyed his captain (Corwin) in not 
watching at Salem, and some being sent to assist the clarke 
in gathering his fine he met them on the way and being asked 
for his fine answered, he had halters enough for them all. 
Evidently the "spirits of men seemed to be very high." 
Havine^ freed themselves of the claims of the watch at 
Salem, the farmers soon began agitating for a separate 
preacher and for the establishment of a parish. The first 
motion toAvard the separation appears to have been in 1666, 
for on the 27th of the 3d mo., being the Loi'd's day, a writ- 
ing was read, subscribed by six hands, wherein some 
brethren, living at the Farms, did acquaint the rest of the 
church that by reason of their distance from the meeting- 
house the}' could not comfortably attend the church assem- 
bly, and therefore desired leave to get a minister for them- 
selves. Two months later, on the 23d, 5th month, this was 
considered, but five of the neighbors of the petitioners, and

also members of the church, having petitioned against it, it 
did not appear they had a competent number. It was also 
decided that the matter was more properly subject for a town 
meeting. (See First Church Eecords.) 

In 1670, under date of Oct. 6, twenty-four inhabitants of 
the village pra3'ed that they have authority to set up a 
separate church. (Archives, 10,105.) The signers state that 
they shall become worse than the heathen unless the}^ can 
have a church. These were : Tliomas Small, Lott Kellum, 
John Smith, John Buxton, John Wilkins, Jona. Knight, 
Philip Knight, Thomas Flint, Hutchinson, John 

Hutchinson, Eichard Hutchinson, Job Swinnerton, Robert 
Goodell, Nathaniel Putnam, Thomas Fuller, John Putnam, 
Bra}^ Wilkins, John Gingill, Nathaniel Ingersoll, Thomas 
Putnam. For nine years the people residing on Cape Ann 
side had endeavored to obtain a separate town government, 
and had succeeded in 1663 in o-ettino; the consent of Salem. 
It was now the turn of the village to attempt to obtain such 
part of independence as they were able. The question had 
been a<z:itated before this, and there was even then a senti- 
ment favorable to separation from the mother town. 

The Rev. Mr. Bailey, a late graduate from the college- at 
Cambridge and a connection by marriage of the Putnams at 
the tillage, was invited by some to preach to them, and he 
went there in 1671 , being dismissed from the church at New- 
bury to the First Church at Salem in October of that year. 

Although the petition was unsuccessful the agitation ^vas 
kept up, and under date of 22 March, 1671-2, at a general 
town meeting of Salem, it was voted : "That all the farmeis, 
that now are or hereafter shall be willing to join together for 
providing a minister among themselves, whose habitations 
are above Ipswich highway from the Horse bridge to the 
AVooden bi-idj^e at the hether end of Mr. Endecott's plain , 
and from thereto on a west line, shall have the liberty to 
have a minister l>y themselves, and when they shall have 
procured one, and pay him maintenance, that they shall be

discharged from their part of Salem minister's mainteiiance, 
this to continue so long as the minister abide,s with them, 
and is maintained by them, provided always that they shall 
bear all other chars^es whatsoever amonccst themselves both 
with respect to their meeting house and minister's house, or 
other ways whatsoever, in carrying on this work, and also 
bear their proportion of all other charges in the town." 

At the October * term of the General Court, in 1672, it was 
voted that in answer to the petition of the farmers of Salem, 
Richard Hutchinson, Thojnas Fuller, and others, that all the 
persons mentioned in the town's grant to the petitioners, to- 
gether with all estates and lands, should contribute toward 
the maintenance of the preacher and erection of the meeting- 
house, and they shall have liberty to nominate not exceeding 
five persons avIio s'.iall have power to collect rates assessed by 
them ; that the constables of Salem shall be empowered to 
make distress upon such as refuse to pay the rates, and when 
they shall have settled a minister among themselves, the}' shall 
be freed from the maintenance of the minister at Salem. This 
vote was modified in the following May to excuse persons 
not living in the village, but owning lands there and partici- 
pating in the common lands within the precincts of the village, 
from the tax for the maintenance of the village ministry. 
This was in reply to a petition from Salem, regarding the 
levying of rates on such property. 

As soon as the General Court had confirmed the vote of 
the town, the householders of the village met and chose five 
persons to 1)e a committee to carry on their ailairs according 
to court order. This committee, chosen 11 Nov., 1G72, was : 
Lieut. Thomas Putnam, 1'homas Fuller, Sr., Joseph Porter, 
Thomas Flint, Joshua l\ea ; and it was voted to tax all vacant 
lands one half-penny per acre, and improved land at double 
that. It was this action that aroused the opposition of the 

* The mafristrales ag:ree(l to a liberal bill for the establishment of the parish on the 
15th October, to which the deputies refused assent, but proposed a modified form the 
next day, in which the magistrates concurred. This was the IGth October, 1672.

non-resident owners, and in anticipation of the petition to 
the General Court mentioned above, the parish, on 6 May, 
1673, authorized Lieut. Thomas Futnam and John Putnam to 
go to the court to answer any petition that Salem may make 
against the former court order. 

The actual division of the parishes had now been accom- 
plished, ahhough there existed no regular church organiza- 
tion, and it was not till 19 November, 1689, that the members 
of the Salem church attendinoj the services at the v ill aire were 
dismissed, and a regular church established at the village, 
with Rev. Samuel Parris as the pastor. 

The parish was full of life. On the 26th of December, 1672, 
it was voted to build a meeting-house, and the town of Salem, 
18, 12th mo. (March), 1672, voted that " Nathaniel Inger- 
son is allowed to sell beer and syder by the quart for the 
time while the farmers are a buildino; of their meetino; house, 
and on Lords days afterward." 

On the lltli of November, 1673, John Putnam, John Bux- 
ton, Henry Kenny, Nathaniel Ingersoll, and Robert Prince 
were chosen a committee to carry on the building of the 
church. The old pulpit and deacons' seat taken out of the 
old church at Salem were presented to the farmers. 

The next event in the history of the separation of the par- 
ish from Salem was authority from the General Court to 
raise a foot compan}^ in the village, granted in response to 
the petitioners, in October, 1677. All those in the villnge 
living on the west side of Ipswich road were freed from 
Captain Corwin's company, and were to be exercised at 
home by Lieut. Richard Leach. 

In 1677 the deputy to the General Court was a village 
man and a prime mover in all attempts at separation, John 
Putnam. 

The spirit of equal participation in parish aflairs by all 
rate-payers was recognized from the commencement by the 
leaders and inhabitants of the })arish, and this was encour- 
aged by a vote of the Genci'al Court in October,^1679, by

which the householders were ordered to elect two persons to 
serve as deacons.* At a parish meetins: in November, 1680, 
it was voted that all householders have the liberty to vote 
and to be chosen on the parish committee, but a later vote of 
the parish, of 3 Feb., 1692-3, that all rateable j inhabitants 
shall have a vote in choosinir a i:)arish committee and re2:ard- 
ing public concerns, was declared void the next month by 
the county court, as repugnant to the province law. 

In 1682 the })arish is st^ded a " plantation " by the com- 
mittee to assess the rates for that year. 

An interesting contest with the constables, which shows 
the old Enolish theorv of common law, that a constable was 
a parish officer and that he could not be called upon to serve 
a process outside his territorv, and also a bare suirn'cstion 
of the survival of the traditionary " constables' court," may 
be seen in the petition quoted below : 

Petition of John Putnam, Sr., Jonathan Walcott, John 
Buxton, Tliomas Putnam, Jr., William Sibley, with the order 
of the Court of October, 1672, annexed, stating that they 
have had a minister for the most part ever since, and have 
expended above £500 upon the ministry, besides the yearly 
salary which is at the present time £60 in silver. Some of 
the inhabitants refuse to pay their proportion, and in spite 
of having sworn out several warrants and given them to be 
seiwed bv the constable at Salen:i, some of them refuse to do 
their duty on the ground that the village, being a distinct 
district in the ministry from Salem, it is not their work 
at law^ ; second, the committee must prove to them by two 
witnesses that they have demanded the rate of every person 
and that they refuse or neglect to pay, and this done hefore 
the constable, and if not they allege this court order doth not 
oblige them to oather the rates committed to them. The 
constable also claims that the committee must <io with 
him when he makes distress. The court is asked to decide

what is .the constable's duty and what the committee's 

duty. 

For a while the inhabitants at the village were apparently 
satisfied with the parish organization. They had large liber- 
ties, could and did regulate their own roads, obtained au- 
thority from the town meetings for all needed highways, and 
indeed the farmers appear to have had a large if not dispro- 
portionate share in the town proceedings. A school was early 
established. Daniel Andrew, a talented man from Cam- 
bridge, is thought by Mr. Upham to have instructed some 
of the youth of the w^ell-to-do farmers. The parish voted, 
in 1701, that Mr. Joseph Ilerrick and Mr. Joseph Putnam 
and John Putnam, Jr., procure a suitable person as a 
school-master, and in the land case of George Cloyce vs. 
Deacon Eleazer Putnam, evidence is ofiered which shows 
that a building then standing on the land sold to Cloyce 
Avas a villao^e school-house, and the ri^-ht to reserve it was 
one of the conditions of the sale. 

Henry Kenny and wife jMary testify they were in com- 
pany with Putnam ; and Cloyce did own that when he bought 
the land whereon stands a school-house for the village chil- 
dren, that liberty was reserved for taking ofl' said school- 
house. This deposition is dated 1 March, 1724. Samuel 
Cheever testified, 13 April, 1725, that the neighbors that 
built this house have been in quiet possession for more than 
twenty years by their tenants or school-dames, and the very 
day it was taken down they were in possession in the person 
of their school-dame, the widow Peese, whose household stuft* 
they removed to the widow Putujim's. 

John Dale testified to the same eflect, and that the house 
was taken down the 18th Februarv last, and erected in a 
place more convenient to the proprietors. 

This Wiis evidently the first school-house in Danvers, and 
probably stood on the line of the old road, long since aban- 
doned, which runs through the old Thomas Putnam farms, 
perhaps near the " Jesse Putnam " place. The second was

that erected by the energy of Eev. Joseph Green, who in 
his diary, under date of March, 1708, mentions bringing the 
matter up before the parish, and that on the 2oth March he 
befjan to i>;et lumber for the house, which was to stand on 
the upper end of the training held. 

The project of entire separation of the village parish and 
of the younger middle parish from the town of Salem as a 
separate town * was constantly revived. On the 5th March, 
1732-3, (Capt.) Thomas Flint, Nathaniel Putnam, and Samuel 
Nurse, as a committee chosen by the parish, petition the town 
of Salem for permission to be set off as a town, which petition 
was presented at a town meeting 19 ]\lar. , 1732/3, and a 
committee was appointed to make terms regarding the 
dropping of the petition. This committee reported that 
the lack of school accommodations ap})eared to be the prin- 
cipal gTievance, and their recommendations were accepted 
by both parties. 

Salem annually raised £250 for school appropriations, and 
it was agreed that each parish should have its ])roportion f 
according to the taxes levied, and that two schools should 
be maintained within the bridi^es and one in the middle 
precinct, and that they should raise their own committees 
and control their own afiairs. 

The agitation was renewed by people of the middle parish 
(now Peabody), who in their parish meeting of July, 1740, 
voted to appoint a committee to confer with the village parish, 
looking toward being set off from Salem. 

On the 8th Sept., 1740, Capt. Thos. Flint, James Prince, 
Joseph Putnam, Israel Andrew, John Giles, on the part of 
the village, again petitioned for separation, and for their 
share of the annual income of the town. 

This claim to a right to a part of the invested town funds Avas 
the principal point at issue, and was tinally abandoned. It arose 

* The parish iueetiii<rs are alluded to by Panis and Green as " town uieetinjrs." 
fin 173t the division was as follows: middle prccinot, £47.4.11 ; village parish, 

£37.6.6; royal side, £10.17.0; two lowi-r parishes (of the town proper), £154.11.7. 

In 1737 the village obtained £36.15, and the town £155.18.

from the action of the town in selling the common land and 
usimr the proceeds for the benefit, as the farmers conceived, 
of the town. The town of Salem, bv a committee consistinsj 
of Benjamin Browne, Thomas Lee, Daniel Eppes, chosen 81h 
Dec, 1740, claimed the town was already too small, that the 
grammar school was a free school, and that the petitioners now 
have their share of the income, and that the petitioners in- 
clude one-tenth of the ministerial tax of the middle parish, 
who if separated would weaken or break up that parish, a great 
proportion of the inhabitants being Quakers. Also that the 
petitioners exclude thirty families who to reach town meet- 
ing would have to pass either through Beverh' or the new 
town, and that they have had more than their share of the 
connnon lands. The fi^ht was carried to the General Court, 
and in 1742, 8th Sept., application was made to the General 
Court for separation, and an extremely pithy document is on 
file in the archiA^es which answers the claim of Salem, saying 
that thou2:h in 1740 Salem claimed the s^rammar school was 
a free school, yet for cheapness such of our people who had 
given their children a liberal education had done it else- 
where till they went to college. One complaint is that the 
publishment of banns at Salem prevented masters and parents 
fi'om learning of the matrimonial intentions of servants and 
children. A more serious grievance was that the voters of 
Salem town, outvoting the farmers, had sold all the common 
lands in the village parish, and had voted the proceeds to 
a school at their own doors, and, by buying up the rights 
of the Middlcton proprietors, had obtained an overwhelming 
interest in the common lands, to the damage of the farmers. 
In 1G96 the town had a2*reed with Kev. John Hisfoinson, 
the pastor of the first church, th;it in consideration of his 
surrendering his claim on the town for £400 back salary, 
they would support his daughter and ymy something to a son 
Thomas, if ever he should come back. The town was called 
upon to maintain Mrs. Anne Dolliver, the daughter, for 
many years, and this charge was borne in part l)y the village,

who justly considered that as they maintained their own min- 
ister they should not be called u])on to help pay a debt of 
the older parish to theirs. Another grievance was the cost 
of keeping a bull in the town for the benefit of the towns- 
people, " and paying your sexton and ringing your bell until 
within a few years." In response to this petition the town 
had voted, on 14 June, 1742, to consent to a separation, but 
remained fixed in the determination not to surrender any 
part of the town funds or income. But the movement came 
to naught in the General Court, in spite of the protest of the 
parish that the onl}^ difterence between them was the diffi- 
culty of the annual income. 

The desire of inhabitaats of portions of the Salem village 
parish far removed from the meeting-house, and nearer to 
other churches, to be allowed to attach themselves to new 
parishes was met in the generous spirit which the village 
people did not experience in their struggle with Salem. 
Those living on the eastAvard side of Frost Fish river, desir- 
ing to unite with a portion of Beverly and form the second 
parish in Beverly, were granted leave and excused from 
parish dues as soon as they had a settled minister. This 
was in 1711. 

The petitioners from Wills Hill, comprising some of the 
best people of the parish, desired dismissal that they might 
unite with some from Topsfield, Boxford, and Andover, in 
building a meeting-house and establishing a ministry, and 
their petition was granted under similar terms, and in 1728 
the taxes at Wills Hill were cancelled. An abatement had 
been made the previous year. 

In 1740, Dec. 1, Samuel Endecott, John Porter, and Ben- 
jamin Porter petitioned the General Court to be set off' to 
the village, and this was granted 8 June, 1743. This addi- 
tion included the Endecott and Porter fiirms east of the 
Ipswich road, which hitherto had been included in another 
parish.

during these years, was realized in 1751, as far as those 
directly concerned could accomplish it, and this introduces 
the reason for giving this article the caption, "The King 
Unwillinof." 

Early in the summer of 1751 the feeling for separation 
was so strong that hopes were entertained of a favorable 
issue of an attempt in that direction, and a committee was 
chosen by the middle parish to confer Avith the people 
of the village parish, and to organize for that purpose. 
The proposition was welcomed by the village people and 
a like committee appointed. The committee, consisting 
of Samuel Flint, Cornelius Tarbell, elames Prince, for 
the village, and Daniel Epes, Jr., Malichi Felton, and 
John Proctor, for the middle parish, reported as fol- 
lows : t 

" Whereas, ye Village parish and ye Middle parish in Salem 
have agreed to come oft' ye town as a seperate town by 
themselves, as appears by ye votes of their respective meet- 
ings, and whereas we the subscribers being appointed and 
impowered for and in behalf of each parish to confer together 
and make report at 3^e meeting of said parishes respectivel3% 
relating]: to said aflliir, have met to2:ether and after due con- 
sideration make report as follows : viz. Th;it ye town meet- 
ings shall be one year in one parish, and ye next year in ye 
other parish successively. That ye major part of ye select- 
men and assessors shall be chosen one year in one parish, 
and ye next year in ye other parish successively. That each 
parish shall share equally in all profits and benefits shall hap- 
pen or acrue. July 2, 1751." 

This report was adopted, and the committee continued and 
instructed to labor with the inhabitants of Salem, many of 
whom were opposed to the separation, although there was 
no longer the feeling against separation which had formerly 
existed. 

A town meeting was held on the 23d October, when the 
prayer of the petitioners was granted as far as the town

could act, the old question of a share in the annual income 
being dropped l\y the petitioners. 

On the 25th* »Tan., 1752, the House of Representatives 
passed an act creating the new town, which passed the Council 
three days later, receiving the official sanction of Lieutenant- 
Governor Spencer Phipps the same day. This act recited that 
the inhabitants of the new district were chiefly husbandmen, 
while those of the old town were merchants, traders, or me- 
chanics, and differences arose in consequence regarding the 
conduct of public affairs ; also as the residents of the new 
parish were so remote from the place of meeting that they 
could not conveniently attend the town mectino^s : and their 
distance to the o;rannuar school is noticed. All riirhts ex- 
ercised by towns were granted the ne^\' district except that 
of sending representatives to the General Court, in which 
they were still to unite with Salem, and furthermore the 
terms of the agreement entered into between the old town 
and the district on the 23d October were to be enforced. 

On the following day an act was passed enabling Daniel 
Epes, Esq., upon the request of three or more inhabitants of 
the district, to call a first meeting for the choice of officers 
for the district. 

Why the name of Dan vers was given the new settlement 
is not known. It has been thought b}^ some that there was 
a connection between the Osborne family of Danvers, a nu- 
merous family there in olden times and at present in the part 
set off as Peabody, with the Danvers famil}^ of England, an 
influential family. ^ It happens that Sir Danvers Osborne 
was appointed governor of New York in July, 1753, dying 

* A most curious blunder was made by the General Court. On the 7th January 
Mr. Epes presented the petition to the House, wliich was granted on the 8th and 
passed the Council on the 15th, and the act duly engrossed, but by reason of some 
omission after the bill reached this stage it was dropped. On the 16th a petition was 
received from the village stating that the petition had not been acted upon, and on the 
25th the House, acting on a petition dated January 22, passed a new bill which passed 
as described. Neither of the engrossed bills is in the proper files, though the first 
copy is among the miscellaneous town papers. As usual in such cases, the name of 
the ne.w town was left blank, to be filled in by the governor when he affixed his 
signature.

shortly after his arrival,* and that he was grandson of Sir 
Peter Osborne, vviio married Eleanor Danvers. It was not 
unusual for the royal governors to flatter or compliment their 
friends or patrons by bestowing their names upon a new town, 
and Phipps may have complimented the fiivored person in 
this manner, but it is doubtful if Sir Danvers Osborne was 
at that time mentioned for the position. ]More likely is it 
that Capt. John Osborne, of Boston, a member of the 
Council from 1731 to 1763, ma}' have known of the inter- 
marriages of the Osborne and Danvers families, and as a 
sort of back-handed compliment to himself persuaded the 
governor to name the distiict Danvers. Phipps and Osl)orne 
w^ere on friendly terms, and the latter was present at the 
council meetings at which the subject came up for action. 

On the other hand it is said that the name Danvers was 
suggested as early as 1745,1 which was before the incident 
named above, and it is not at all likely that in that case the 
Danvers Osborne connection was thought of. Nor is it 
known whence came the Osborne family of Danvers, though 
the widow of William Osl)orne, an early settler, returned 
to England and married a Yorkshire man. And there was 
apparently more than one family of that name in the town, 
but not of such consequence that their suggestion of a name 
would be apt to have much weight with their neighbors or 
with the governor. There is also a manor in southern lUick- 
inghamshire in England known as Danvers, which, had the 
name been chosen at a date many years previous, might 
reasonably have been supposed to have suggested the name, 
as the Putnams came from a region not far from there, and, 
likely enough, there were other emigrants from that locality. 
Indications would seem to point to the naming of the town 
as a compliment pure and sim})le to the real or imaginary 
connection of Councillor John Osborne, of Boston, Avitli the 
English familv of the name, whose several marria^^es with 

* lie took char<;c the 10th October, and committed suicide the 12th. 
+ Hanson, in " History of Danvers; " but I have found no trace of the use of the 
name, and think tliut this is but one of the many inaccuracies found in Hanson.

HOW DANVERS BECAME A TOWN. 157 

the distinguished Dan vers family were well known, and 
from no connection, fancied or otherwise, which may have 
existed between the Danvers Osbornes andDanvers Osborne. 

Daniel Epes issued the call * for a district meeting the 18th 
of February, and the meeting was held at the north meeting- 
house on the 4th March followin<2:. 

Daniel Epes, Esq., was chosen moderator and Daniel Epes, 
Jr., clerk. Seven selectmen were chosen, three from the 
south parish and four from the north parish, as follows : 
Daniel Epes, Jr., Esq., Capt. Samuel Flint, Deacon Cor- 
nelius Tarball, ]\Ir. Stephen Putnam, Mr. Samuel King, Mr. 
Daniel Gardner, and Joseph Putnam. Four constables and 
five tithing-men were chosen, and other officers. At an 
adjournment of the meeting, 18th March, it was voted to 
procure a person to keep the grammar school, as soon as 
possible. 

As stated, in ever}^ wa}^ the district was a town excepting 
in the right to send representatives to the General Court, 
though this right was exercised in common with Salem, the 
people being therefore represented in the General Court. 

In 1752 Salem and its district were fined £60 for not send- 
ing a representative to the General Coui*t, so the right was 
evidently not highly valued. | The following year Henry 
Gibbs represented the town and district, one of the two 
allowed alone being sent. In 1754 Daniel Epes, Jr., was 
joined with Gibbs as representative, and this arrangement 
existed in 1755 and 1756, and the following 3-ear John 
Turner and Epes were Salem's representatives. Thus the 
district was effectually represented. 

On Jan. 25, 1755, a town meeting was called to see if the 
district should petition to be erected into a town, and at the 

•The petitioners were Jona. Kettle, Jasper Needham, David Putnam, Joseph 
Osborne, Jona. Buxton, Malichi Fclton, Samuel Kinjf, Nathan Procter, Daniel 
Gardner, John Procter, Thos. Flint, Cornelius Tarbox, James Putnam, Samuel 
Flint, James Prince. 

t Governor Pov.nal in his dispatches home at a later date mentions acts erecting new 
towns which he was obli^^ed to disallow ; although the petitioners were willing to forego 
the right, the assembly would not permit that reservation.

158 ttOW DAN VERS BECAIME A TOAVN* 

iiieetino: held the 3d February it was voted to instruct their 
representative, Daniel Epes, so to do, and it was further 
voted at this meeting to instruct him to oppose the plan for 
a general union of the English s^overuments and colonies on 
the continent, now under consideration of the General Court. 

It is evident that Epes was considered by the Danvers 
people as directly representing them. The plan of union 
mentioned was one perhaps proposed by Hutchinson and not 
that recommended by the Albany Congress under the leader- 
ship of Benjamin Franklin and Hutchinson, and which was 
not acceptable to the General Court, being rejected Dec. 14, 
1755, but which voted that some plan of union was advisa- 
ble. On the former plan Mr. Gibbs had voted in the afErm- 
ative, but Mr. Epes did not vote. On the 27th Dec, 1754, 
Epes voted Avilli the majority, that further consideration of 
the plan of union be deferred until the members have an 
opportunity to confer with their constituents. Gibbs, of 
Salem, was of the minority. It was really an excellent plan, 
and provided for a president-general and a council, the latter 
elected by the representatives of the people. 

On the 4th June, 1757, Daniel Epes * reported a bill erect- 
ing the district of Danvers into a town, which was read the 
first time, and on the 8th was read the third time and sent up to 
the Council, which concurred on the 9th, but the act was not 
published till the IGth Jtine. The original charter is in posses- 
sion of the town. There was at this time neither s^overnor nor 
lieutenant-governor in the province, else it is hardly likely 
that the erection of the tow^n would have been so easily accom- 
plished. As it was, Thomas Hutchinson, afterward governor, 
requested that his dissent to the vote be entered in the records 
of the Council, giving as his reasons the absence of those offi- 
cials and the well-known instructions of the kinir not to allow 
any further increase in the representation of the towns. It 
should be well to consider in this connection that this increase 
of representation was not denied altogether in the matter of 

* Called on the records " the represeutative for Salem and Danvers."

new towns at a distance, and when forming part of new coun- 
ties eslu.blislied,iis GoveruorPownal states he allov/ed an act to 
establish a certain town for the reason that it was einincntl}^ 
proper that these new counties should be represented, and 
that he considered it was rather to prevent the preponder- 
ance in the representation of the old counties than to shut 
out true representation. 

The acts of the sessions of the Legislature were not for- 
warded to the Board of Trade, the especial bod\" constituted to 
advise the Privy Council, and thus the king, of colonial doings, 
until 12 Jan., 1758, ahliough Governor Pownal had arrived 3 
Aug., 1757, and were not received till 3 May, 1758. On 
the 31 July, 1759, the Board of Trade reported to the lords 
of the Privy Council that the sole purjiose of the act was to 
grant the privilege of representation, which was in direct 
contradiction to the kino's instructions to the jrovernor in 
1743, and advised that the act be disallowed, which hap- 
pened on the 10 Aug., 1759, at a meeting of the king in 
Privy Council at- Kensington Palace. Mr. Abner C. Good- 
ell, Jr., the efficient editor of the Acts and Eesolves of the 
Colony of Massachusetts Bay, thinks that the action of the 
Council was never officially transmitted to the colony or 
known here, for he says the town was represented in 1758 
and after that. I have been unable to find any report of a 
meeting called for the purpose of electing a representative 
till 17 GO, although Cornelius Tarbell sat in the General 
Court as deputy from Danvers in iNIay, 1758, and Daniel 
Epes, Jr., Esq., in 1759. Salem at this time sent but one 
representative, so that really the representation was not 
materiall}^ changed. The town of Danvers is so styled in 
acts of 1760-1, 1761-2, and of 1772-3. 

In 1760 voters for representiitive were required to have a 
freehold of the value of 40 shillings annually, or other prop- 
erty to the value of £40 sterling. 

The first call for a meeting to elect a representative is 
dated 5 May, 1760, as representative elections were held in

160 HOW DANVERS BECAME A TOWN. 

May. Thomas Porter was the choice of the people, and 
althoiiirh the town was entitled to two, it was voted to 
send but one representative, and this was the rule afterward. 
In 1762, 94 votes were cast, a large number; in 1763, 64 
votes, both of which years Thomas Porter was elected. In 
1764, 84 votes were cast, of which John Preston had 72. 
The representatives from this date were as follows : 

1765, Thomas Porter. 

1766, 1767, Daniel Epes. 

1768, 1769, Samuel Ilolten, Jr.* 
1770, 1771, Dr. Samuel Holten.* 

1772, Samuel Holten, Jr. 

1773, 1774, Dr. Samuel Holten.* 
1775, July 17, Dr. Samuel Holten. 
1775, 1776, Aug. 7. Capt. Samuel Epes. 
1777-1779, Col. Israel Hutchinson. 

1780, Col. Israel Hutchinson and Hon. Samuel Holten. 
1781-1783, Col. Israel Hutchinson. 

1784, Gideon Putnam. 

1785, Col. Israel Hutchinson. 

This is the history of how Danvers obtained its independ- 
ence after a struggle of nearly a century, and it is no wonder 
that the town meetiufi: in Danvers retains all of its old-time 
vigor, and that the town should take decided stands even in 
advance of les^islative enactment when the welfare of the in- 
habitants is at stake. 

* Hon. Samuel Holten, one of the foremost patriots of his day. He was elected, 
September, 1774, by 78 out of 79 votes, to represent Danvers in the General Court to 
be held at Salem, and authorized to join Avith others in the-Provincial Congress. In 
177o he received all the votes cast — 36, and Capt. Wm, Shillaber 23 votes, as delegates 
to the Congress at Watertown.

The object in copying the baptisms in the First Church 
at Beverly is to add the maiden surnames of the mothers 
of the children baptized. The h'st is not full and complete, 
owing to a transient residence, of many members of the 
church, in the town. But mainly, and so far as ascertained, 
the list isfaii'ly full, in regard to the early membership. 

Augustus A. Galloupe. 

Beverly, Mass., Oct. 22, 1896. 

The Lord in mercy allurino- and brinirinir over into this 
wdldernesse of new England many of his. faithfuU servants 
from England whose aymes weare to worshipp God in purity 
according to his w^ord : They in pursuance of that worke 
began to sett vpp perticular churches : And the First Church 
gathered in the Masachusetts Colony was in this towne of 
Salem : a gratious begining- of that intended reformation 
which hath beine farther prosecuted & prospered through 
the Lords mercy in diuers ])arts of this land : This Church 
of Salem entrcd Church Covenant with publique fasting and 
prayer vppon the sixt day of the sixt month 1629 : Their 

number att the begining verry smalc As their 

church increased diuers of the members came over the Ferry 
to line on basse ryuer side, who on the 10*^ of the 12^'* mo*^. 
1649 (Mr Norris beinge, teacher) presented their request to 
the rest of the church for some course to be taken for the 
meanes of grace amongst themselucs, becau.se of the tedious- 
ness & difficulties over the water and other inconveniences : 
which motion was renued againe the 22^*^ 7 mo*^. 1650: 

[Note by Editor. — Mr. Galloupe has placed the maiden name of the mothers in 
parentheses. Such additions are not a part of the original record, but were obtained 
by careful investigation and comparison with the various existing records.]

" the second burying ground in Duxbury." Winsor's Dux. 
This burying ground is near the railroad station of South 
Duxbury. His stone is quite illegible, but I made it out as 
follows : 

"Here lyes Capt. Samuel Bradford of Duxbury, who 
died Feb. 17, 1714, in 47^" year of his age." 

Children, probably all born in Duxbury :

gravestones are well preserved and handsomely carved. 
They read, ''Here lyeth the Body of Elizabeth, ye Avife of 
Sylvester Kichmond Esq. who died October ye 23'"'^, 1724, in 
ye 52nd year of her age." " In memory of Col. Sylvester Rich- 
mond of Dai-tniouth who died November ye 20^^", 1754, in ye 
81^* year of his age." " Here lyeth ye Body of Hannah, ye 
daughter of Sylvester Richmond Esq. and of Elizath his wife, 
died January ye 20^'', 1728 in the 20"' yenY of her age." " In 
memory of Mrs Deborah Richmond, Relic of Col. Sylvester 
Richmond, and formerh^ the wife of Mr. Thomas Loring. 
She died Oct. 18, A.D. 1770 aetatis 96." "Fare well 
vain world &c" Sylvester Richmond Avas prominent in Little 
Compton afiairs ; later in life of Dartmouth, but I presume 
not far over the line, for he kept up his connection v.ith the 
Little Compton church. For further particulars those inter- 
ested will, no doubt, find what they wish by consulting 
the new Richmond genealogy, just coming out, compiled b}^ 
Joshua Richmond, of Brookline, Mass, In Austin's "Gene- 
alogical Dictionary" I find, " In May 1701 May 29, he bought 
of John Rogers of Boston. He bought 40 acres in Little 
Compton for £60, of William Earle, Feb. 7, 1727. He 
made a covenant with Deborah Loring & Caleb Loring, 
previous to marriage to said Deborah," He "held the 
title of Colonel." He served in the French war, but was 
not the Colonel Richmond present at taking of Louisburg. 
This was his son. He was one of the founders of the church 
in Little Compton, and continuously to this day this family 
is represented in the church. Elizabeth, his wife, joined 
the church Oct. 4, 1705. 

Children, probably all born in Little Compton : 

110 MVilliam Richmond, born Oct, 10, 1694. 

111 Elizabeth Richmond, born May 10, 1696.

■ 17. 3 i^uth Rogers (^Elizabeth Pabodie, ^Eliz. Alden). 
Born April 18, 1675; died in Little Compton. "Here 
lyeth the Body of Ruth, the wife of James Bennett, died 
April ye 28, 1725, in the 50*^^' year of her age." She 
married at Bristol, , James Bennett, son of John Ben- 
nett, of Charlestown, and Mary , bis wife. See Wyman's 

Charlestown Genealogies, and East CambridGre Probate 
Records and Re<2:istrv of Deeds. His mother afterwards 
married a ]Meades, and she is bui'ied in Little Compton near 
her son James. A deed at East Cambridge speaks of James 
and Ruth Bennett, John Bennett, Mary Bennett, and Josiah 
and Rebecca (Cutler) Bennett, and their mother Mary 
Meades, widow of John Bennett, of Charlestow^n. A still 
later deed speaks of John and Ruth Bennett. Ruth (Rogers) 
Bennett was not mentioned in her father's will, and was dead 
without children. James Bennett married, second, Ruth's 
cousin, once removed, Merc}^ Simmons. James Bennett was 
one of the organizers of the clmrch in 1704. Ruth Bennett 
was adm>itted to the church Oct. 4, 1705. In the cemetery 
we find the stones with tlie following inscriptions: "Here 
lyeth the Body of James Bennett, died Feb'^>' ye 17^\ 1729- 
30, in ye G4^*^ year of his age ; " also, "Here lyeth the Body 
of Mary Meades, alias Bennett, mother of James Bennett 
who dyed March ye 5^^, 1729, in ye 79^^ year of her age." I 
think that John Bennett who "died July ye 25, 1752, in 
the Gl'^ year of his age," and is buried in the Little Compton 
cemetery, is James Bennett's brother, and that Mary Bennett 
who married Thomas Palmer was his sister.

Alden). Born May 4, 1677 ; died in Little Compton Jan. 
19 or 20, 1770. Gravestone says: "Jan. 19, 1769 in 
the 92"^^ year of her age;" married, about 1694, Nathaniel 
Searle, of Dorchester, son of Robert and Deborah Searle, 
born in Dorchester, June 9, 1662. He came to Little Comp- 
ton after 1696. Deborah, his daughter, was baptized Dec. 
21, 1701. On "June 7, 1696, Nathl Searles of Little 
Compton laid hold on the covenant." Among the sixty-nine 
baptized Nov. 1, 1700, by Rev. Peter Thacher and Mr. 
John Danforth, were "children of Nathaniel Searle, John 
and Sarah." On "June 26, 1700, Nath'l Searle and Sarah 
his wife " admitted to the church. Nathaniel Searle was 
the first schoolmaster. The first school had a peaked top, 

erected 1724, and Avas located on the old 
colony road, on the grounds of Airs. Charles 
Wilbur, better known in the villac^e as 
" Aunt Sarah Charles Wilbour." She was 
the antiquarian of the village, and she had a 
peaked stone chiselled out and placed on 
the stone wall, with the words "Peaked Top School house, 
erected 1724," under it. The inscriptions on the stones in the 
graveyard, very near the Pabodic monument, are as follows : 
"Here lyeth ye body of John, son of Nath'l Searle, and 
Sarah his wife. He was drowned March ye 26, 1714. 
Buried iNIay ye 23 following — aged 16 years, & 14 days." 
"In memory of Nathaniel Searle, died Feb. ye 5^'' 1749- 
50 in ye 88^^ year of his age." "In memory of Sarah, the 
wife of Mr. Nathaniel Searle, who died Jan. 10, 1769, in 
ye 92"^^ year of her age." 
Children :

122 John Searle, born in Dorchester, March 12, 1698; died, 

drowned March 20, 1714.

19. ^Mevcy Southworth (^Mary Paboclie, ^Elizabeth 
Alden). Born in Dnxhnry nbont 1670; diod, I think, 
about 1728 ; jn'obably mother of all the cliildren ; mariied, 
about 1701, Moses Soule, son of John and Rebecca (Sim- 
mons) Soule. Probably he was no younger than his wife. 
Winsor says he had land granted to him in 1707. I feel 
sure he married, second, Sarah Chandler, Jan. 15, 1729. She 
was probably daughter of Joseph and Martha (Hunt) Chand- 
ler, born , 1714. This makes her very young, fifteen, to 
marry a man at least sixty years old ; but such things have 
been done. It is j)ossible that Moses Soule may have had a 
son Moses, who died before his father, without children ; 
or Moses, who married Sarah Chandler, may have been a son 
of Aaron, brother to Moses, senior. I feel sure nil the chil- 
dren of Moses, senior, had i\Iercy Southworth for a mother. 
Winsor says ]\Iercy Southworth, daughter of Edward 
Southworth, maiTied Micali Soule in 1740. That ^ Mercy 

Southworth was or^anddauirhtcr of Edward Southworth. • li 

The estate was divided into ten parts in 1751. There was 
no mention made of a widow. The division was as fol- 
lows : Isaac Soule (eldest son) ; Cornelius Soule ; Barna- 
bas Soule ; Ichabod Soule, deceased, and Abigail, his only 
child; Gideon Soule; Jedediah Soule; Ruth Soule ; Eliza- 
beth Soule, wife of Barnabas Perry ; * Deborah, wife of John 
Hunt. 

Cornelius Soule was remembered in his OTandfather Ed- 
ward Southworth's will. 

Children, all probably born in Duxbury : 

125 * Isaac Soule. 

126 Cornelius Soule, born 1703. 
• 127 Barua])as Soule, born 1705. 

128 Ichabod Soule, born 

129 Gideon Soule, born 

130 Ruth Soule, born . I think the Miss Ruth Soule 

who died March 17, 1777. 

131 Elizabeth Soule, born 

* ** Old Times at Yarmouth, Maine," gives this as Beiry.

His will, dated Feb. 15, 1750, proved Sept. 2, 1751, names

12, 1756, a3t. 82. Winsor and others say that John, son of 
John and Mercy (Pabodie) Simmons, married Experience 
Pincknell, but her husband, John, was dead 9 Xov., 1711, 
and his wife administered on the estate, and no children are 
mentioned. John Simmons, Sen., mentions his son in his 
will as alive in 1715, and Mercy, his wife, mentions him 
in her will in 1728. Therefore, I have taken the John 
Winsor has given to '^Aaron Simmons (^ Moses), and placed 
him as son of John and Mercy (Pabodie) Simmons, and given 
John, husband of Experience, to ^ Aaron Simmons (^ Tyloses).

Abigail Simmons, the mother, was admitted to the church

of the Covenant, and submitted themselves to the discipline 
of Christ in this Church." Also, " Mr. AVm. Simmons July

Jun,, and Sarah Simmons, children of Isaac Simmons. I fail 
to find in my notes any mention of the mother of these cliildren 
being a daughter or sister of Elizabeth (Alden) Chandler. 
Capt," Jonathan Alden (^elohn) had three daughters, and 
we find but two, and the wife of this Isaac Simmons may be 
the third. In this case I should place her ^s wife of our 
Isaac, and the family would be as follows : 

Isaac and (Alden) Simmons had : * 

165 * Deborah Simmons.

usual, the notes on the orig^in and history of the more prom- 
inent French settlers whose names occur in the narrative are 
many. 

Old King William Homes and Families. An ac- 
count of some of the old homesteads and families of Kino- 
William County, Virginia, from its earliest settlement. By 
Peyton Neale Clarke, of Louisville, Ky. John P. Morton 
& Co., Louisville, 1897. Large 8vo, pages 210, illustrated. 
The county chosen by Mr. Clarke for his researches was 
anciently a part of the old county of York, later of New 
Kent, not far fi'om the settlement at Jamestown. It is said 
that some of the most famous families of the South and of 
the West trace their oriiiiiji to this res^ion, and from the 
list of important families mentioned in the work it seems 
most probable. 

We are sorry that the compiler has chosen to notice the 
ridiculous story that Dahlgren's raid on Richmond was for 
the purpose of assassinating the Confederate president and 
cabinet, and the city given over to rapine and pillage. The 
clemency continually exercised by the Washington govern- 
ment and the well-known character of the commander of the 
Union troops is in itself proof that no such order could have 
ever existed. • 

The main family in the series of allied families is that of 
Edwards, descendants from an emigrant of about the year 
1745, Ambrose Edwards, said to be the son of an English 
clergyman who had emigrated to America. No success has 
attended foreign investigation for the English history of the 
family. 

We wish the arrangement of the Edwards genealogy had 
been different and more in keeping with the arrangement 
of the allied families. The principal families named are 
Claiborne, Croxton, Dunbar, EUett, Freeman, Fontaine, 
Griswold, Henry, Lewis, Moncure, Pollard, Quarles,

Early Long Island Wills of Suffolk Co., 1691- 
1703. By Wm. S. Pelletreau. Frances P. Harper. New 
York, 1897. (In press.) 

Mr. Pelletreau is the editor of the Southampton records 
which are so vahiable to families tracing: their line back to 
eastern Long Island, and this volume will be found invalua- 
ble for reference by students of New England and New 
York genealogy. Price, $5.00. 

The Fjkst Republic in America. By Alexander Brown, 
author of the "Genesis of the United States ; " to be published 
by Houghton, Mifflin and Co., Boston, at six dollars. The 
work of Mr. Brown relates to the period 1605-1627, with 
especial reference to the history of the Virginia Company of 
London, as it developed both in America and England. 
Subscriptions should be sent to the publishers or to Mr. 
Brown, Norwood, Nelson Co., Va. 

Worcester Probate Index. By arrangement with a 
Worcester printer, Geo. H. Harlow, Esq., the Registrar 
of Probate, has been able to print the index of Worcester 
Probate from 1881-1897, and offer the same to the public for 
$5. It is hoped that sufficient encouragement will be oflered 
to enable the earlier indexes to be treated in the same way. 
Why should not every county print and distribute copies of 
its indexes as Suffolk has done ?

It is an admirable book, and directly in line with the advice 
contained in our issue of June last regarding family genealo- 
gies. 

A Record of So^ie of the Descendants of William 
Eldredge of Yarmouth. By Zoeth S. Eldredge. Pri- 
vately printed. Boston, 1896. 

This is a reprint from the Register with additions, and not 
only eml)races much material relating to the Eldredges, but 
several families from whom the author descends. 

Vital Record of Reitobotii (map), 1612-189G, with 
supplement. Providence, 1897. Ro. 8vo, pages 926. 

Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850. Provi- 
dence, 1897. Vol. ix, Seekonk, pages 596. 

These two volumes, additional results of j\Ir. Arnold's 
labors in the field of Rhode Island vital statistics, are closely 
connected. The records of Rehoboth are of great vahie, and 
their printing is a boon to genealogists. Few persons recall 
to mind that that town was once of so much impoiiance as 
to seek the location of the seat of government within its 
borders. Mr. Arnold has accomplished so much that one 
cannot help expressing the wish that his researches will, after 
the completion of this series, extend into the domain of pro- 
bate and land records. The ninth volume of the Vital 
Records of R.I. includes Pawtucket and East Providence. 

Proceedings of the John Bean Association, at Exeter, 
N.H., Aug. 19, 1896. The descendants of John Bean are 
enthusiastic in the work of gathering all possible information 
concerning the clan. Mr. J. H. Drummond, the historian of 
the famil}', delivered an address at this meeting which is 
printed in the report, and which is extremely useful and 
touches upon the several branches of the family.

Essex Institute Historical Collections, Yol. 33, Jan- 
uary -June. Salem, 1897. The first part of this vohime, 
nearly two hundred pages, is distributed. We note as of 
particular interest Topsfield deaths from 1653, and accounts 
of the first cotton mill in America at Beverly, of Salem Neck 
and Winter Island, formerly the seat of the fishing and mari- 
time industry of Salem. This latter paper is illustrated with 
a map. 

A Genealogical History of the Harwood Families, 
descended from Andrew Harwood of Boston. B}^ Watson 
n. Harwood. 2d edition. Chasm Falls, N.Y., 1896. 

This account of one line of the Harwoods does credit to 
Dr. Harwood, and will be fonnd of vnlne to students of other 
lines. jNIany illustrations are insei-ted. A few more than 
100 pages embrace the genealogy, which is well printed and 
simpl}^ arranged. 

TiiE Bentley Family, with o^enealo^ical records of the 
Ohio Bciitleys and known as the tribe of Benjamin, by Gen. 
Roelifi* BrinkerhofF. Pamphlet, 20 pp. 

In his valuable sketch General BrinkerhofF gives in full 
the various traditions regarding the Bentley immigrants, and 
deduces the descent of Benjamin from George, of Pennsyl- 
vania, whom he assumes to be a grandson of William Bent- 
ley, the Ivhode Island settler of 1679. In a private letter 
the author writes that later investigations point to the fol- 
lowing line of descent : John Bentley, a surveyor under 
William Penn in Pennsylvania before 1704, suip])osed hrotlier 
of William of Rhode Island, had a son' Jefi'rey, who was 
father of George Bentley, probably identical with the father 
of Benjamin Bentley.

BOOK NOTES. 223 

a genealogical, biographical, and full IMasonic register of all 
the Miisons bavins^ connection with Masonry in Danvcrs and 
Peabody. Edited and compiled by Wor. Bro. D. A. Mas- 
sey, Secretary of Amity Lodge, Peabod}^ * 1896. Large 
8vo, cloth, pp. 73 Jr. 

While tlie date on the title page of this work is 1896, it 
was not till 1897 that the book was ready, and the first few 
copies had but been delivered when the author succumbed to 
a sudden attack of pneumonia. One can but regret that Mr. 
Massey should not have lived to see the appreciation with 
which his work was received. 

United States Lodge was organized in 1778 by a band of 
patriotic men, and embraced members from neighboring 
towns, the eventual cause of its disruption. On its ruins 
in due time arose Jordan Lodge, the mother of the two 
younger lodges. Amity and Mosaic. 

The records of over a thousand Masons may here be 
found, including men who were famous in their time. Not 
only did Mr. Massey show great ability in obtaining the 
Masonic history of individuals, but he has given us the 
parentage and many bits of personal history which render 
the book invaluable for a reference book of biography for 
this part of Essex county, and it can but prove a valuable 
source of information for genealogists both of the present 
day and in years to come. As in many cases several mem- 
bers of a family for two or three generations appear on the 
roll of the lodges, there is a great deal of connected family 
history. The illustrations are over one hundred in number, 
and include such buildinirs as are of historic interest as well 
as Masonic interest. Keproductions from portraits, one as 
early as 1762, others of nearly as early, a date, add much 
to the value of the book. Some old china, with Masonic 
decorations, and also curious jewels and tokens, are illus- 
trated. We quite coincide with a criticism previously 
expressed, that this work is a most valuable contribution 
not only to the history of MasoDr}^ but to the local history 
of Essex county. The edition, which was generously sub- 
scribed for by the Masonic bodies, was limited, so that early 
application must be made to obtain copies of the remainder 
left in the hands of the estate.* The price for the present 
is placed at $5. 

* Arraup-ements have been made -svith tlie executor euabling orders sent to the 
publisher of this magazine to be filled promptly.

any children by second wife, Anna Dresser, whom he married 
1752? By first wife (who was she?) he had Joshua, Robert, 
Mary, Mindwell. What became of these children? Did 
Mary marry Taylor Small, of Harpswell? P.

An attempt is being made to revive the Maine Historical 
and Genealogical Recorder. We trust the effort will be suc- 
cessful. Every genealogist should subscribe for as many 
genealogical publications as possible. They are a good 
investment. Complete iiles are always salable at a pre- 
mium. 

A NOTICEABLE omissiou in the October number of the New 
Encfland Historical Genealogical Record is that of the usual 
instalment of " Waters' Gleanings," caused, we understand, 
from lack of funds.

SOME REMARKS CONCEHHIHG- HSCOnDS, 
THEIR CUSTODY AND CARE.* 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



A public record is a record made by some official, which 
is, and always has beeu, retained in official custody, or has 
been recognized b}' authority as a record. 

Annals in the possession of private individuals or public 
officers are not records. Neither are pnpcrs, oven of legal 
import, in private possession, records. It has been denied 
by an English court that a title deed recovered by the 
rightful heir from disinterested private persons is a record. 

There are in some families collections of papers of great 
value, not only relating to the family, but to public concerns, 
accumulated, perhaps, in the days when an official consid- 
ered such original documents as came into his possession as 
private rather than public property. This view of the case 
was common in colonial days, and papers of great value to 
the State have been lost in this manner. 

There are various depositories for records : the offices of 
various departments of national or state governments, the 
county offices, the court offices, the town and parish offices, 
and the church. 

In England an attempt has been made, with considerable 
success, to gather the national archives in one office, known 
as the Public Record Office. In this office have been de- 
posited such records as are not of value in current business, 
or are not necessarily, from state reasons, retained under 
close supeiTision. Such an office could be established in 
every state, with advantage to the public, as a place for

SOiME REMARKS CONCERNING RECORDS. 



deposit not only for state archiv^es, but also for county and 
ancient town records. 

In large states two or more places of deposit could be 
provided, where, under suitable rules, access could be had 
to all earty records, arranged and calendared, and thus 
safely preserved. Since the value of our ancient records 
has become impressed upon the minds of the people, 
and through them their representatives and officials, it is 
not unlikely that some such system will eventually be 
adopted. 

Not only do various systems exist regarding the place of 
deposit of state archives, as well as of local records, but there 
is a great diversity in the vahie and number of documents 
preserved. In some the archives are in the charge of the 
secretary of state, ^vhile in others they are in the custody of 
the state librarian. In the northern States county court- 
houses contain the records of the registries of deeds and 
probate, of the county commissioners, and the various 
courts ; in others a less compact system is maintained. The 
offices of the selectmen, in those States where the New Eng- 
land town system prevails, usually contain the older town 
records of every description, but where that method is not 
followed, the town clerk has full possession of the town 
records of the most value, while the records of the assessors 
will be found in various places. 

A plan much in favor where the opportunities exist is to 
have a vault or room in the local library, where the records 
are cared for by some one responsible person. Unfortu- 
nately the records in the past, and, in some instances, of 
the pi^esent day, have received so little care that large por- 
tions have been irrevocably lost or made illegible by damp, 
rats, and other causes. In many instances the records have 
been destroyed by fire. The laws of Massachusetts respect- 
ing records are probably the most complete of any at the 
present day. It is no longer possible to call for valuable 
records or original documents, and calmly deface them by

SOME REMARKS COXGERNING RECORDS. 227 

stealing autograph signatures and letters, as has been done 
within a fc^Y years. 

Fireproof safes or vaults are required for the preservation 
of all local records, and the places of deposit of count}^ rec- 
ords are supposed to be fireproof buildings, safe from pillage. 

The overcrowded condition of many places of deposit has 
rendered some of the plans for the preservation of the records 
nugatory. 

In the office of the county clerk of a county, containing 
the most complete and the most valuable collection of records, 
relating not only to the county, but to nearly all its towns 
prior to 1800, space is so sadly needed that the clerks have 
been known to wish for a fire to clean out the "old stuil'." 
Such cu'^todinns are not proper persons to hold such respon- 
sible and honorable positions. 

A judge of the Superior Court of the State, upon entering 
the roomy and elegant office of the clerk of courts, remarked 
to one of the subordinates that what was needed was a c^ood 
fire to make room. Such instance of reckless failure of ap- 
preciation of the public nature of the records, and their 
great value, is ample warning that little attempt would be f 

made to save the ancient records in case of fire ; * indeed, 
there may come a time when, for the convenience of the 
holders of the clerkships, the records will be stored away in 
some inaccessible and neglected part of the building, as was 
done with one class of early court records in one of the old- 
est counties of an adjoining State. 

Through the very efficient commissioner, appointed by the 
governor of the State, the records of the counties have been 
to some extent catalogued, and the town officers have been 
watched and warned, until the condition of local records is as 
good as may be expected under present conditions. A like 
official has been appointed in the State of Rhode Island ; and 
movements lookino^ toward a similar recoo;nition of the value 

♦Since the above was written, a timely discovery of fire in the building prevented 
what might have resulted in a loss one does not care to contemplate.

228 SOME REMAKKS CONCERNmG RECORDS. 

of local records and the enforcing of personal responsibility 
have been inaugurated in other States. 

In Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine the records 
of probate, of land conveyances, and, for early years, returns 
fi'om towns of marriages, births, deaths, etc., are to be found 
at the county seats ; the town records are to be found in the 
towns ; and the church and parish records in the possession 
of the clerks of these bodies or of the pastor. 

In Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont the land rec- 
ords are in the possession of the town clerks, who also have 
charge of the town records. The probate records are in the 
possession of the judges of probate. In Vermont the probate 
courts are situated at the county seats ; in Rhode Island tliey 
are in each town. In Connecticut certain tovvns, either bv 
themselves or joined with one or more smaller towns, com- 
prise a probate district. The county court records in each 
instance are at the office of the clerk of courts at the county 
seat. 

In New York and Pennsylvania the county seats are the 
places of deposit for land conveyances and probate records,* 
as well as court records of certain nature, while the town 
and church records must be sought in their several localities. 
The secretary of state has charge of early inarriage bonds 
and licenses in Pennsylvania which have been published. 

The same s^^stem prevails in New Jersey \ and Dela- 
ware, but in the former State, until 1800, the land and 
probate records may be found in the office of the secretar}'- 
of state . 

In Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Kentucky, and some 
other States, the county seat is the place to seek nearly all 
local records except such as pertain to the limited doings of 
the parish or township officials, and such as are in the pos- 
session of church officers. 

* Little 13 to be expected from town records in these States. 

t Township records, with two or three exceptions, places originally settled by 
New Englanders, are practically woiihless for the genealogist.

SOME EEMARKS CONCERNING RECORDS. 229 

In Maryland* prior to 1775 probate records were recorded 
at Annppolis, since then in the county clerk's office where the 
other county records from earl}^ times are found, including 
court records. 

The state land office has original or duplicate records for 
the whole State, of all grants public and private. 

Western records are usually kept in places of deposit 
similar to the New York and Massachusetts systems. 

Here and there occur cities or towns with extra privi- 
leges, with courts of local record, etc., and in the territory 
obtained from France there survive local and peculiar in- 
stances of places of deposit. Inquiry made of the county 
clerk at the county seat will usually elicit needed informa- 
tion as to the various places of deposit of records for that 
locality. 

Many records have been printed either through public 
appropriations for the purpose, or through the assiduity of 
historical societies, and by private enterprise. Genealogical 
magazines generally will be found to abound with copies of 
records, usually in the form of abstracts, and restricted gen- 
erally to the localit3' in which the magazine is published. 

A small fee should be enclosed with letters of inquiry 
addressed to the town or county officials, if an examination 
of the records is requested. The usual sum is one dollar to 
a town clerk, and two dollars to a county clerk, which must 
be increased if much work is required. Copies of deeds, or 
of wills, will cost about one dollar each. Care should be 
taken to state that an abstract is desired which should show 
all items of a o'enealo«:ical nature and locations of lands. 

If })racticable, it is better to employ a person accustomed 
to record searching than to rely upon official good nature or 
appreciation of the needs of a genealogist. Such a person 
can accomplish more in a da}^ than a dozen letters of 
inquiry will effect, and at less expense. In most large cities 

*In Maryhiud great care has been taken of land records. Besides this the Reg- 
istrar has had made an abstract of all names of immigrants occiuring in the i-ecords. 
An index of the probate records is now in process of construction.

or important towns, of the older States, there are record 
searchers, or persons who are accustomed to perform such 
work when occasion oflers, whose charges are reasonable. 
Instructions should be Hven to such assistants to confine 
themselves strictly to facts, and not to develop theories of 
their own. 

Unlike the British system there are usually no fees exacted 
for the privilege of examination of public records.*

WHIPPLE, 



V ''5t ** 



In the article in the last issue of Putnam's Historical 
Magazine on the family of Dr. Joseph Whipple, he is " said 
by descendants to have gone to sea in a privateer." 

This would imply that it is merely a matter of tradition, 
whereas it is well authenticated. 

Dr. Joseph Whipple, son of Joseph and Sarah (S winner- 
ton) Whipple, was born in Salem, Dec. 26, 1733. He

daughter of ^Yilliam Fairfield, speaker of the Great and Gen- 
eral Court, 27th M-dv, 1741, "the highest office then in the 
gift of the people, the Governor and Deputy Governor being- 
appointed in England." (Hist. Wenham, Mass., Civil 
Hist., etc.) Of the ten children of Dr. Joseph and Eunice 
(Fairfield) Whipple, the eldest was born at Wenham, the 
others at ]Manchester. The dates are : 

1. Joseph, Nov. ?9, 1766. 

2. William, Oct. 17, 1758. 

^ 3. Elizabeth, Dec. 12, 1759..

10. Mary, Nov. 22, 1777. 

Dr. Joseph Whipple is mentioned in the town records of 
Manchester as beins: elected one of a committee "to seat the 
meeting-house in ye year 1760." He was a physician at 
Manchester from the time of his movino- there, as earlv as 
1758, until the outbreak of the Revolution, and is mentioned 
frequentl}^ in the town records, so it is improbable that he at 
any time resided in Boston. June 3, 1774, he was chovsen 
one of a Counnittee of Correspondence of Four, by the town 
of Manchester. In July, 1775, upon the arrival of news of 
the battle of Lexington, he enlisted and commanded a com- 
pany or half company at Manchester, and he was still in com- 
mand in October, 1776. In 1777 the privateer " Gloucester " 
out of Gloucester was lost with Dr. Joseph Whipple, " an 
ardent patriot," and the entire crew of 130 souls. (Early

GEORGE HUBBARD AND SOME OF HIS 

DESCENDANTS. 



BY MISS E. W. LEAVITT. 



George Hubbard, whose first authentic history begins 
with his appearance in Hartford, Conn., is thought, accord- 
ing to one family tradition, to have first resided in Water- 
town, Mass., and to have gone thither from Wakefield, 
Essex County, Eng. Others claim that he came from 
Glastonbury, Somersetshire, Eng. Glastonbury was the 
name given to that part of Weathersficld, Conn., where he 
lived for some years. Burke, in his ''General Armory," 
gives Hubbard of Essex, but not of Somerset.

238 GEORGE HUBBARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

June 7, 1636, George Hubbard and Samuel Wakeman 
were appointed to lay out the liounds of Dorchester in 
Connecticut (Conn. Col. liev,, Vol. 1, p. 2). On Feb. 21, 
1636, with Ensign Stoughton and Samuel Wakeman, 
George Hubbard " was to consider the bounds of Dorchester 
towards the lower falls." Shortly after it was decided that 
"the Plantation now called Dorchester shall be named 
Windsor." As the other two members of this committee 
were both from Dorchester, Mass., it seems fair to infer that ; 
George Hubbard had come with the jMassachusetts Company 
in Dorchester which founded Windsor. 

April 5, 1638, George Hubbard, of Weatherslield, was 
appointed to ti'ade with the Indians on the river. (Conn. 
Col. Eev., Vol. 1, p. 20.) Oct. 10, 1G39, George Hubbard 
was appointed by the General Court at Hartford to " gather 
passages of God's providence which have been remarkable 
since the tirst undertaking these plantations." (^Ihid,, p. 30.) 
Februar}^ 1639, George Hubbard owned a "small parcel of 
land in Hartford on the highway leading to Rocky Hill, one 
rood of which he bought of Jeremy Adams" (another Dor- 
chester, ]\lass., man). (Book of Distributions, p. 279, in 
Hartford.) In 1640 he owned a house and about ninety-five 
acres of land on Weathersville river, by John Plum, Edward 
Mason, Richard Gilder (Weathersfield Town Book, p. 246). 
" A.D. 1650, Benjamin Ilarboard bought George Hubbard's 
house-lot on the highway to the woods by Robert Bartlett, 
AVilliam Hills, Widow Wesles" (Book of Distributions, 
p. 480). 

Oct. 25, 1657, land of John Hubbard which he bought of 
his father, George Hubbard, of Guilford, colony of New 
Haven, as appears by deed of sale dated Oct. 25, 1657 
(Weathersfield Town Book, p. 247, Vol. 1). 

John Hubbard's land comprised " 104 score acres of Great 
Meadow," while his house lot was contiguous to those of 
Thomas Welles, Edward Mason, Josiah Churchill, Thomas 
Curtis, and Thomas Wickham.

A COLONIAL REMINISCENCE. 239 

In 1651 William Hubbard was summoned to appear 
before the Particular Court in Hnrtford, at Trhicli liiiic LLs 
brother, John Hubbard, gave recognizance. (Wills, Yol. 1, 
p. 38.) 

George Hubbard, Senior, will was written in Guilford, 
Conn., entered in New Haven Probate Office, Vol. 1, Part 2, 
page 96. In it he mentions his sons, John, William, Daniel ; 
daughters, ivlary Fowler, Sarah Harrison, Hannah Molynes, 
Elisabeth; grandsons, John Spinning, Daniel and Ebeuezer 
Hubbard. i\Iay 23, 1682, he added a codicil, stating that 
his life had been prolonged, devising a room in his house to 
his daugliter Elisabeth. His inventory was taken May 30, 
1683. 

Bond, in his History of Watertown, Mjsss. (p. 795), sjiys 
George Hubbard resided a few years in Milford, Conn., 
thence removed to Guilford, and that his children were : 

1. John. 

2. George, of GreenNvich, Ct. 

3. Daniel, of JMilford and Guilford. 
1> 4. William, of Greenwich. 

5. Mary — 1648, John Fowler, of Guilford. 

6. Sarah — Harrison. 

7. Abigail — Humphrey Spinnicg, of New Jersey. 

8. Hannah ( — Molynes as per will).— 

9. Elisabeth — John Norton.

A COLONIAL REMINISCENCE. 



In "Reminiscences of Eminent North Carolinians" we find 



the following extract : 



" On an out-going vessel from Virginia to the ' Mother 
Country,' when a few miles from land, a young boatswain 
sprang from the deck, and swam back to shore. The feat 
was accomplished for the purpose of marrying his Virginia 
sweetheart."

240 A COLOXTAL EEMIXISCENCE. 

The first* descendant of this couple of whom we hear is 
Robei-f Jones, Eobcrt or Eobin Jones was born in the 
count}^ of Sussex, Virginia, in 1714, and was of Welsh 
descent. 

At an early age, advantages, educational and otherwise, 
being very poor in the colonies, Kobin Jones was sent to 
Eton, England, where he spent several years, making many 
warm friends, among others Lord Granville. On his return 
to this country he was empowered by this nobleman (who 
owned large tracts of land in North Carolina) to act as his 
agent and attorney. 

As the asrent of Lord Granville, Eobin Jones amassed a 
large fortune. He was regarded as one of the most eminent 
lawyers of his day,f making the greatest speech of his life 
two hours before the amputation of a limb, from the elFects 
of which he died. 

In review^no^ the services of Robin Jones to the " iMother 
Country,'' we find the following (Eolls Office, Colonial 
Record, London) : 

"March 20, 1761, Robert Jones, Jr., appointed b}^ order 
of the King and Council Attorney General." 

"April 21st, the Attorney General, Robert Jones, 
advanced £1200 to aid in buying wagons. 1761 Gov. 
Tryou informs the Board of Trade of the death of Robert 
Jones, Oct. 2nd." % 

Wishing to give his young sons, Allen and Wiley, greater 
advantages than the}' could have in the colonies, Robeil 
Jones had concluded to send them at an early age to 
England, where, with the friendship and promised supervi- 
sion of Lord Granville, they would have the same advantages 
that he himself had enjoyed. 

I have seen a description of the appearance of these two 
little boys as they started forth on their journey, that, in 
these days of fashion-plates and Liliputian bazaars, must

needs excite amusement. " Thev were dressed in Ions-tailed 
bine coatc, and vc.its like those worn by iLc men of the 
period, and with these they wore knee-breeches iuid buckles, 
and also, following the fashion of the day, their hair tied in 
queues." 

The unique appearance of the small colonists excited quite 
a mob, it is said, when they reached Liverpool, but finall}' 
Lord Granville's carriage, with his housekeeper, arrived, and 
bore them to hi? country' seat, where, under his supervision, 
they received an education. 

Surrounded in their earliest yevLYs by the blue mountains 
of a State the cradle of heroes whose fame will nerve unborn 
generations to pati-iotic deeds, the sons of Robin Jones were 
early imbued with a love of country, and a patriotism that, 
gradually fanned into a great flame, was to serve as a beacon 
light to illumine a path for patriots. 

On his return to America, Allen Jones, the eldest son of 
Robin Jones, became eminent as a patriot and leader; and at 
the convokino^ of the Colonial Cono^ress was selected one of 
the five brigadier-generals sent to the War of the Revolution 
from the State of North Carolina. 

He was a member of the Continental Conoress that met in 
Philadelphia, 1771, and from 1774 to 1776 represented 
Roanoke county in the Senate. 

Wiley Jones vras also known as a patriot and leader, and 
as President of the North Carolina Committee of Safety was 
naturally Governor of the State. 

His wife, Mrs. Wiley Jones, was noted for her wit, one 
of her retorts having come down to us in history. 

When the British army were making their way to Vir- 
ginia, in 1781, the officers were for several days quartered 
among the families who resided on the Roanoke river. 

Colonel Tarleton, who had been severely cut by the sabre 
of William Washinaton, was a resident of Mrs. Jones' fam- 
ily, and when he made some slighting remark about Wash- 
ington, saying among other things that he was an " illiterate

fellow, and was hardlj able to write his name," Mrs. Jones 
replied, "Ah, Cojonel, but then he knows how to make his 
mark" (referring to the wound inflicted by Washington). 

" But then I never saw the fellow," Governor Tarleton con- 
tinued, and Mrs. Ashe, the sister of Mrs. Jones, who seems 
to have inherited the femily repartee, remarked, " If you 
had looked heliiiid you at the battle of Cowpens you might 
have seen him." 

It is said that it was in enthusiastic admiration of Mrs. 
Wiley Jones and General Allen Jones that John Paul (who 
it is a well-known fact had no legal right to the surname) 
added Jones to his name.* 

Unfortunatel}'^, neither General Allen Jones nor Wiley 
Jones left a male descendant. 

The only son of General Allen Jones died when a child, 
and his singular death is mentioned in a letter from Iredell, 
a North Carolina historian. 

Iredell was on a visit at the time to General Allen Jones at 
his magnificent residence, " Mt. Gallant." 

This home with its two fisheries on the Roanoke river was 
inherited by his granddaughter, Mary Long, who took pos- 
session of it on her wedding-day. 

In making preparations for the wedding a servant found a 
trap door in the dining-room floor, with a ladder leading 
down into a large room completely furnished, and supposed 
to have been used as a hiding-place during the War of the 
Revolution. 

It was of this house that Governor Swain, of North Caro- 
lina, in hearing of the accidental destruction of Robin Jones' 
papers, exclaimed, " Why didn't they burn *Mt. Gallant,' 
but save old Robin Jones' papers ? " 

Gen. Allen Jones was not only a great patriot and leader, 
but like his father Robin, whose opinions are still quoted in 
the legal code of North Carolina, a distinguished lawyer. 

Naturally, I never met my great-great-grandfather, nor

French in 1605, to be abandoned two years later,* reestab- 
lished 1610, destroyed by the English in 1613, it was 
not abandoned by its French inhabitants until the establish- 
ment of Sir William Alexander's Scotch colony in 1622. 
This latter colony met with utter failure, there being but 
two of its members living there in 1635. Port Royal with 
Acadia was ceded to the French in 1632, who reestablished 
a French colony there. Later D'Aulnay and de la Tour 
figure on the scene. The place was captured by Sedgwick 
in 1654, but ao'ain celled to France in 1667. The French, a 
year after they actually obtained possession, that is, in 1671, 
numbered 361 persons in the colon}'. Captured by Phipps 
in 1690, unsuccessfully attempted by Church in 1704, and 
by March and Wainwright in 1707, it finally succumbed in 
1710. No place in America has so varied a history. 

The orants of land under the EnHish oovernment, and the 
matters leading up to the dispersionof the Acadians in 1755, 
are carefully considered, and supplemented by a chapter 
entitled "The seizure and dispersion of the Acadians 
reviewed and considered, by the editor," which is an 
exhaustive essay on the affair. 

The history of the townships, from 1775, is full of gene- 
alogical information, which is followed by 200 pages of 
county genealogies. 

The author acknowledges his indebtedness to Mr. Wm. 
E. Chute, " whose knowledge of Annapolis county family 
history is prodigious," and whose " Chute Genealogies and 
Allied Families" f he largely draws from. 

* During the interim the place may have been visited by Europeans, for in 1827 
a stone was discovered on or near the site of the fort, bearing the date 1609 and 
Masonic insignia, which is probably the oldest Masonic memorial in North America, 

fPublished by Eben Putnam, Salem, Mass., together with this present volume 
under, consideration, the principal sources of genealogical information regai'diug

248 BOOK NOTES. 

The Genealogical Magazine. London, Elliot Stock, 
publislied monthly. The appearance of this new genealogi- 
cal and heraldic magazine in May last was hailed with 
delight, for every English genealogical publication is a boon 
to Americans so far removed from English sources of original 
information. It bids fair to rival its older contemporaries. 
An article on Welsh pedigrees in the June issue should be 
read by Americans of Welsh descent as illustrating the sys- 
tem of family nomenclature in Wales. Another notable 
article is the Shakespeare pedigree, given in much detail in 
all its branches. 

Catalogue of Barkhamstead (Conn.) Men who served 
IN the Various Wars, 1775 to 1865. Meriden, Conn., 
1897. 

Historical Address at the Dedication of the Sol- 
diers' MoNiBiENT at Barkhamstead. 

These two pamphlets by Mr. Wm. Wallace Lee supple- 
ment each other. The roll of soldiers is of especial value 
and shows conscientious research beyond the mere details of 
service. It is not generally realized that the rolls of Revo- 
lutionary soldiers for Connecticut are very incomplete, the 
published list so handil}^ referred to not bearing evidence of 
what is lacking in the archives. Barkhamstead claims nearly 
165 Revolutionary soldiers. Forty-nine men were in the 
W^ar of 1812 and eight in the Mexican war, while there were 
130 in the Union army. Every town should have a record 
of this character. W^e believe that published by Danvers, 
Mass., the most comprehensive so far printed.

without issue. The pamphlet in hand deals with the descend- 
ants of Daniel. The publisher, Mr. B. F. Leeds, 528 Wal-

The New London Historical Society announces the 
Hempstead Diary to be published by subscription. 

The Hempstead Diary was a private journal kept by 
Joshua Hempstead, 2d, from the year 1711 to his death in 
1758. He took an active part in the affairs of the town for 
a period of fifty years. He was at once a farmer, surveyor, 
house and ship carpenter, attorney, stone-cutter, sailor, and 
trader. He generally held three or four town offices ; was 
judge of probate, justice of the peace, executor of various 
wills, overseer to widows, guardian to orphans, member 
of all committees, ever^^bodj^'s helper and adviser, and 
cousin to half of the community.

sons, George, Robert, and William. Robeil, the second 
son, died in 1559, leaving, among otlierB, two sons named 
John. Of these, the elder was the father of George, baptized 
at Saffron Walden, 1592, who came to New England. Mr. 
Minot expresses his indebtedness to Mr. W. K. Watkins. 
The illustrations are interesting, and tlie coat-of-arms given 
is that which was in use in this famil}^ in the 14th centur3^ 

One feature of the book, which, by the way, does not pre- 
tend to completeness, is the lack of mention of residences of 
the members of the family named. There are exceptions, but 

the omissions are noticeable. This is a fault very common 
in o-enealooies.

Geoege W. ^YAGENSELLER, editor of the "Post," Middle- 
burgh, i'a., has puljJi.slicd a pedigree of the Wagenseller 
famil}" as a supplement to his paper. John Wagenseller, 
the emigrant, was born 24 June, 1737 ; died 20 Sept., 1799. 
He is said to have come from German3^ 

Mr. Ephraim Mower has published pamphlet genealogies 
of descendants of Samuel Mower, of Maiden, 1714, who died 
in 1760, and of James Cutler, of Lexington, who died in 
1694. Tabular pedigrees add to the value of both. 

James Rogers, of Londonderry, X.H., and James Rogers, 
of Dunbarton, is the title of a pamphlet by Hon. J. H. 
Drummond. The Londonderry man was of the Scotch- 
Irish settlement, while the Dunbarton man was the father 
of Robert Rogers, ranger and tory. 

Official Report of the First American Tyler Fam- 
ily Reunion, held at North Andover, Mass., 1896, by W. 
T. Brigham. Chicago, 1897. The pamphlet contains an 
account of the proceedings ; also of the early Tyler emi- 
grants, and notes concerning various later members of the 
family. A list of members is given. 

The Brigham Young Family is a chart showing the 
ancestry of Brigham Young. It was arranged and dis- 
tributed by Mrs. Susan Young Gates, of Provo, Utah, secre- 
tary of the Young Family Association. The first American 
ancestor named is AVilliam Young, of Boston, and later of 
Ilopkinton, where he died 1747.

Prospectus for 1898 



*w^ » 



Established in 1890, without previous aiiiiouiicenieiit, and \s iilioat 
a single sub3.cril)or. 1898 sees this geneak)gical ni:?gazine firmly e.-tah- 
iiblied upon ail jiidependeut i;a:3iS, ovving ikvors l(j ] aie. 

Our subscribers have changed to some smail extent. Dealli, 
removal, or h)ss of gencak.gical interest are responsible for ,-ucli 
eliangcs as have taken place. oMost of the names on our list at ibo 
end of our first j'car or two are still found in place. 

It is duo to such generous support that this periodical has been 
able to sustain its existence. 

The seven volumes, originally published at $13, have sold as high 
as $25. ■ ' " 

DuiilNG 1898 THE MAGAZINE WILL BE ISSUED MONTHLV (cxcept 

during July to Sept.), and it is to be hoped that hereafter there will be 
no necessity of '' doubling' up'* issues. Arran2enients have been uhadc 
so th{)t the absence of the editor, a matter of frequent occurrence, will 
not interfere with the reoularitv of issue. 

The dale cf i^-ue \- il' Ij:' Ijetwceu the middle and end of tlie 
month. 

Some idea of the material which will appear in the magazine dur- 
ing; 1898 may be obtained by irlancinir over tlie brief notices siven 
below. 

The liigginson Family in England and America, 

including the allied Virginian and New England families, \vi!l be 
described in an elaborate series of articles running' throuL»:h the year. 
Mr. Putnam's reseai'ches into the early history of this ])rondnent 
xVmerican family have been attended with great success, and, throniih 
the liberality of his client, the results obtained are permitted lo a})pear 
in jhitnam's Historical Magazine. The connection of tlie New Kngland 
and Yiro'inian families with the Berkeswell and Wem fcmily <'\ Hii',2:in- 
son, in Eni!:land, will be clearly demonstrated. 

Something of what will be offered in 1898. 

During the ])ast year considerably more space was devoted to 
reprinting original records tlian in former years, and this policy seems 
to liave pleased our subscribers, r 

Durinir the coniimr year we shall continue the publication of 
abstracts of the invaluable Essex county court records^ and of the Ehucx 
count!/ rerjistercd deeds. 

The publication of the earl}^ records of Preston, Conn., copied by 
jNIr. Frank Pjilmer, will begin in the February issue. Tliest' records 
are of espe<dal value as-^o maiiy families of eastern Connecticut and 
Massachusetts are therein represented. The Killingl}' records will bn 
completed. 

jNIayflower Descendants, and families oriirinatin<r, or runriing 
back into the "Old Colony," will find :\[rs. Alden's " J^7/^v//^y^^M {Ahltn')

Beverly Baptis^.is. — The Beverly hapttsras will continue, and 
this series is undoubtedly the mof^t vcduahle series of hapfisras aov: being

Essex, Middlesex, and Suiiolk counties, Mass., have l)een selected. 
We are also promised a number of ^'iro•inian marria2:e records.

Parrington, Oummings, Bi-'<hop, Whipple^ Higginson, Others are

Coat Arivlor. — Each issue will contain a colored print of a. coat- 
of-arms borne by an American family with an account of its ori^^in, use. 
etc. None l->ut authentic examples will be admitted to the magazine, 

XoTES AND Queries. — Genealogical material is solicited from 
subscribers, who are also invited to use the columns of the magazine 
for queries and notes. Authors are urged to send the editor advanced 
sheets of their Y)ubIications, and copies of books and pamj)hlets for 
notice, and may rest assured that the editor vvdll o-ive each its due 
and contribute in no small measure to its pultlicity. 

Essex County Probate Records. 

As not a sufficient number of advance subscribers v/as received to 
justify the publication in separate form, of the Essex County Probate 
liecords, that project will be abandoned. 

The material will, however, appear in the magazine, from vrhicli a 
limited number with sei)arate pagination will be/reprinted. 

Not only the records of the court, but the fdes, will be printed. 
There is proliably no more valuable material for genealogists than tliat 
embraced in the records of probate courts. 

Orders for the reprint editions must be sent in a,t once so that tlie 
edition can be determined. 

As the issue of this magazine is, primarily, for the benefit of sub- 
scribers, the editor wdl! be helped it they will send him their preferences 
regarding local records and families in which they are especially inter- 
ested. Suir^'ostions will be i^-ratefully received, and as far as consistent 
with the aims of the editor, will be followed. 

Lastly, subscribers are requested to forward ih^lr iiciyrnerdi^ for 
1898 proinpf.li/, and not to wait for bill. 

In the past fully hfty [)er cent, of the takers of the magazine have 
neglected to remit til! the end of the year, thus making the work of 
the publisher more difficult. Every dollar is needed to ]y.\x the 
printer's bill.
